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."

Practicing Mentoring

YouTube video featuring 2009 PAESMEM awardee Jo Handelsman, from Yale University. Handelsman describes guidelines that she and her colleagues have developed to help scientists become better mentors. These include listening, asking questions, stating expectations, building independence, and looking at things from the perspective of the mentee or protégé. Good advice for scientists at all stages of their careers.
