Determining if a mentee understands the content and process of their discipline is not easy, and yet it's critical in a productive mentoring relationship. Developing strategies to assess understanding, especially of core research concepts, is an important part of becoming an effective mentor. During this workshop, we will explore different environments and approaches which mentors can utilize to help mentees understand specific topics and build self-efficacy.

This workshop is intended for faculty who mentor graduate students and is part of an ongoing series about best practices in mentoring graduate students. The series is a collaboration between the Graduate School, Center for Faculty Excellence, TEAM ADVANCE and the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (School of Medicine), Content is adapted from TEAM ADVANCE’S Faculty Mentor Training and CIMER’S Entering Mentoring.
