Upcoming Events

Wed, Apr 23
9:00 am Learning to Mentor the Next Generation of Scientists Attention graduate students and postdocs mentoring other researchers!Will you be responsible for supervising an undergraduate research project this summer? Do you expect to mentor research in the future and would like to improve your mentoring skills? Excellent mentors develop through years of practice, but this 5-workshop seminar series is designed to accelerate the process. The program will equip mentors with useful mentoring strategies and tools for resolving mentoring challenges. A previous participant commented, “The themes addressed were crucial; I wish you could require this of all students and mentors.” Those who participate will become more confident, effective mentors, and the broader effect will be amplified through enriched research experiences for undergraduates and their mentors. This program is free and open to anyone at Yale who would like to participate.  Contact kristin.rudenga@yale.edu if you have questions.

9:00 am Preparing Future Science Faculty: Teaching Your Own Course Are you a graduate student or postdoc preparing for an academic career track? Are you looking for ways to develop your skills as a teacher? Participants in this workshop series will gain valuable tools to help them make the transition from being a TA to teaching their own course. Topics will include elements of course and syllabus design, effective use of assessments and assignments, and strategies to promote active learning.

4:00 pm to 5:30 pm Stereotype Threat and First Gen Students (Advanced Teaching Workshop) How might “stereotype threat” obstruct the learning process for students from underrepresented backgrounds? What are the unique learning challenges faced by first-generation students? This workshop will build awareness about these issues and provide participants with strategies to address them. N.B. This workshop satisfies the diversity requirement for the CCTP program.  For more information, please contact Luke Mayville (luke.mayville@yale.edu).
