Tomorrow, I’m heading to the University of New Mexico’s inagural Mentoring Conference, entitled “Fostering a Mentoring Culture in the 21st Century: Bringing Best Practices and Research to Higher Education.” I hoping to come back with some ideas and resources for the ESN Mentoring Program.
So, I’m going to be surrounded by researchers who specialize in academic mentoring. What questions would you have for them? What would you like to know about best practices in mentoring? What issues have you encountered (either as a mentor or as a mentee) that you’d like discussed?
