Encouraging Research through Student Mentorship
Presenters: Ryan G. Carlson, Ph.D.; Naomi J. Wheeler, Ph.D.; and Nakita Carroll, M.A.
Students are traditionally eager to learn and apply content that has been taught in their field, but transferring interest to engaging in research projects can sometimes be difficult. Professors can also face challenges with fostering this learning process due to the time, resources, and relational skills that are needed to mentor and motivate students to engage in research practices.
Senior and mid-career faculty, as well as doctoral students from a multi-university collaborative (i.e., Consortium for Family Strengthening Research) will provide information on developing and maintaining a mentoring relationship in a university setting. Attendees will learn how to define and discuss a relational mentorship process and identify common challenges in mentoring. Presenters will also discuss strategies for mutually-beneficial mentoring relationships, as well as share examples of implementing research mentorship across universities and disciplines.
Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education.
