Workshop Summary
2018 ASM Mentor Training Workshop participants will explore key aspects of effective mentoring practices, reflect on their own mentoring practices, and learn strategies to improve their practice. Mentoring competencies addressed in the workshop will include establishing and aligning expectations, effective communication, evaluating mentee understanding, promoting mentee independence, and working with mentees from diverse backgrounds. Each participant will draft and revise a mentoring philosophy and make plans to implement what they learned in the workshop.

 Additional Information:
The Entering Mentoring curriculum on which the workshop is based, is used in various formats by the Center for Improvement in Mentored Research Experiences. It  was originally published by J. Handelsman, C. Pfund, S.M. Lauffer, and C. Pribbe and was based on the Research Mentor Training Seminar curriculum originally developed by the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching with support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professors Program. A new version of Entering Mentoring was published in 2014 by W.H. Freeman and Co. By C. Pfund, J. Branchaw, and J. Handelsman.
