New online course for research mentors

November 2, 2012

Training & Education

The University of Minnesota’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute has developed a free, online, professional development course designed to prepare faculty in higher education to be effective research mentors for junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students.

Optimizing the Practice of Mentoring, which takes approximately 90-120 minutes to complete, engages learners through text, audio, mini-presentations, self-assessments and other interactive activities. Upon completion, participants complete a Mentoring Action Plan and a Course Improvement Survey, and gain access to a toolkit containing helpful resources.

The curriculum was developed by faculty members from across the U of M’s Academic Health Center with leadership from Drs. Anne Marie Weber-Main, Esam El-Fakahany and Janet Shanedling.
