Entering Mentoring: A Seminar to Train a New Generation of Scientists

"The goal of the seminar outlined in this manual is to accelerate the process of learning to be a mentor. The seminar provides mentors with an intellectual framework to guide them, an opportunity to experiment with various methods, and a forum in which to solve mentoring dilemmas with the help of their peers. Discussing mentoring issues during the seminar provides every men- tor with experience—direct or indirect—working with diverse students, tackling a range of mentoring challenges, and considering a myriad of possible solutions."
