Group/Peer Mentoring via Regional Team Events
MMFPN Regional Teams will host a mentor who will work through a solution to a common or requested problem/obstacle that graduate students or recent graduates face. This interactive meeting will involve a group discussion on ways to approach and solve the issue.
MMFPN will host several webinars throughout the mentoring terms to provide you with helpful content to aid you in your mentoring relationship.
- The first webinar, date TBD, will cover the three main types of communication that mentors utilize and help mentors strategize their approach to the relationship. Our WW mentoring expert, Audra Watson, will discuss how mentors rely on the three main types of mentor discourse: instructive, collaborative, and facilitative communication.
