Title: Case Studies in Effective Mentoring

Following on last week's presentation from Kathryne Woodle, we will have structured discussions on being an effective mentor (and mentee). We will discuss case studies from the APS Mentor Training Seminar, with the goal of developing strategies for determining if your mentees understand what they are doing and what is expected of them, and for helping mentees develop the skills and confidence to carry out independent research.
