Spring 2015 Teaching Workshop Series

Teaching Workshop Series: Canvas as a Pedagogical Tool


Best Practices for Mentoring Graduate Students & Post-Doctoral Fellows

Friday, April 17th, 2015 | 10:00am-11:30am | Faculty Center, MLIB 1705

For most faculty at a major research university such as the University of Utah, the mentor relationship with graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows is a very important form of teaching. The majority of faculty are not taught how to be good mentors.  This workshop will be a panel discussion of University of Utah faculty members who have been recognized for their outstanding mentoring of graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows. They will discuss their own approach to the mentoring process, as well as provide suggestions to help faculty who want to enhance or who may be struggling with their role as mentor. Light refreshments will be provided.

Panelists :

Matt Basso - Associate Professor, Department of History and Program in Gender Studies

Richard Dorsky – Associate Professor, Neurobiology & Anatomy

Carol Lim – Associate Professor, Department of Pharmaceutics & Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Jennifer Mabey – Assistant Dean for Post-Doctoral Affairs, Graduate School

Kim Martinez – Associate Professor, Art & Art History

Pre-registration for this event has closed; onsite registration begins at 9:30 am on April 17th. We hope you'll join us.
