The Facilitator Workshop: Learn to Implement Mentor Training is a two-day workshop designed to increase the capacity for research mentor trainings offered at colleges and universities, research institutes, and organizations. During this workshop, participants are introduced to the Entering Mentoring curricula, which addresses the following themes: aligning expectations, addressing equity and inclusion, articulating your mentoring philosophy and plan, assessing understanding, cultivating ethical behavior, enhancing work-life integration, fostering independence, maintaining effective communication, and promoting professional development. Workshop participants become familiar with the curricula, practice facilitating training components, and develop a plan for implementing the training at their institution or organization.
The registration fee is $1,495 and includes participant materials, breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack on both days. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.
This workshop is limited to 32 participants. We highly encourage teams of two or more people from an institution or organization to attend together. Each individual needs to register.
