We are pleased to offer a new workshop from the Center for Mentoring, entitled Mentoring Faculty: A Facilitated Panel, on Thursday, October 25, starting at noon. This session will address topics such as the role mentoring plays in the career trajectory of faculty, how to be a better mentor, and how faculty can find the right mentors at the right time. Professor Anne Robertson from the Swanson School of Engineering will facilitate the session, hosted in 211 David Lawrence Hall.
As we begin a new school year, we are pleased to announce several new resources and services available to the University community. The Mentoring Academy was launched in April to offer faculty the opportunity to participate in a program based on the National Research Mentoring Network curriculum. Trained faculty facilitators will lead the program, which will offer workshops on eight mentoring competencies over four sessions, resulting in a credential for participants. Read about the more new resources in this week's newsletter.
Our next Teaching Partners meeting is Friday, March 23, from noon - 1:30 p.m., at the University Club (Ballroom A). Lunch will be provided. This community now contains faculty from as many as 40 different schools and disciplines. You can join the conversation and sign up for the March meeting on our Teaching Partners page.
