"How to Become a More Effective Mentor/Mentee"

Kirsten Tollefson , Professor and Associate Dean, Graduate School, at Michigan State University
[Host: Prof. Craig Group]

I will discuss what recent research says about the science of effective mentorship and how we can learn to do it better. We will focus on 2 competencies - aligning expectations and maintaining effective communication - through some guided activities. I will give you examples of strategies and resources that can help you become a more effective mentor and mentee.
