Dr. Earlise Ward and HELI 2015 alum Dr. Felicia Taylor-Waller recently found each other at the COMPACT for Faculty Diversity Teaching & Mentoring Institute in Tampa, FL!
Dr. Ward was there to present on Research Mentoring related to the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) with colleague Dr. Patricia Kokotailo. Check more NRMN programming opportunities via their site!
This session will focus on the research mentoring needs of participants, both in their role as mentees and as mentors. Based on the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) model and the publication “Mentor Training for Clinical and Translational Researchers”, Drs. Earlise Ward and Patricia Kokotailo will present information targeted to post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty regarding effective communication skills, aligning mentor-mentee expectations, use of mentoring compacts, and use of individual development plans. Interactive techniques and group discussions will be used to foster learning of these important strategies in a culturally aware context, and promote networking around effective mentoring approaches.
