Friday Mentorship Training with CIMER
Requires an additional day at Asilomar

The research mentor training offered by the Center for Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER) is an evidence-based, interactive approach designed to help mentors develop skills for engaging in productive, culturally responsive, research mentoring relationships—relationships that optimize the success of both mentors and mentees.

Research mentor training—based upon the book Entering Mentoring—has been tested and shown to be effective in increasing mentoring knowledge, skills, and behavior. Furthermore, culturally responsive interactions between mentors and mentees can help historically underrepresented mentees successfully progress in their research careers, becoming effective mentors, scientific leaders, and research team members of the future. The one-day training offered the day after the LTER All Scientists' Meeting is designed to accelerate the process of becoming an effective research mentor by providing mentors with an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with various methods, and a forum in which to solve mentoring dilemmas with the help of their peers. By the end of the training, mentors will have articulated their personal style and philosophy of mentoring and have a toolbox of strategies they can use when faced with difficult mentoring situations.

The workshop will be led by CIMER Master Facilitator Steve Lee with the assistance of CIMER-trained LTER facilitators. The training is offered at no cost to participants, but participants must plan on staying until at least 5 pm on Friday, September 23.
