Mentoring Workshop

SESAPS 2011 Mentoring Workshop, 3:45 PM–5:15 PM, Thursday, October 20, 2011 Monica Plisch, American Physical Society.

How do you effectively mentor individuals at different stages of their careers? Are you ready to address the NSF’s new requirement about mentoring post-docs in your next proposal? Can you learn to become a more effective mentor through training? Scientists often are not prepared for their crucial role of mentoring the next generation. Based on a research mentor seminar developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and modified for physics by the American Physical Society, this workshop is designed to help you start to become a more effective mentor.
