The Persistent Questions of a Calling and Career: Mentoring as Innovation and Collaboration: Insights from the Across the Academic Career
: Mentoring, Junior Faculty, Professional Development Symposium
This proposed Professional Development Symposium, designed for faculty from all career stages, junior through emeritus, will discuss the “How, and Why?” of mentoring. Mentoring is a neglected topic role that is seldom, if ever, part of PhD studies or a faculty orientation program. This is ironic given that mentoring of students, at any point of their education, as well as peers and others, is a basic form of teaching, and is often one the most fulfilling activities of being a faculty member. Junior faculty are generally new to mentoring both as a mentee and or mentor.
