|TITLE||Introduction to Student Mentoring|
|LEVEL||D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium|
|ECTS CREDITS||Not Applicable|
|DESCRIPTION||This interactive workshop aims to introduce participants to the process of mentoring other students through a series of hypothetical ‘situations’ that may arise. These will include mentoring of individuals and small groups. Situations requiring sensitivity to cultural or behavioural diversity will also be introduced. The importance of the mentor as a role model, research guide and general advisor will be tackled.
By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should:
- have acquired knowledge of the most frequent situations that are likely to arise during interaction with students;
- have become more aware of how to interact effectively and sensitively with students, including under difficult circumstances;
- have attained knowledge about the role of the mentor;
- have acquired knowledge about the limitations of the role of the mentor.
