On March 2nd, there will be two workshops presented by Mary Deane, Sorcinelli, Ed.D entitled "Mutual Mentoring at Mid-Career: Making Every Connection Count" and "Network-Based Mentoring Programs to Support Faculty Connections: A Fresh Approach for Academic Leaders."

The first workshop explores the challenges faced by associate professors and the role of mentoring in contributing to academic career advancement and success. Recent literature and practice now offer new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of "multiple mentors" who can address a variety of career competencies. In this interactive session, you will identify your professional goals, strengths, and skills that you want to develop; explore mentoring as a medium for helping you meet those goals; "map" your own mentoring networks--what they are and could be, drawing on a range of examples; and discuss best practices for seeking, developing, and cultivating a network of mentors. The intended audience for this workshop is all Mid-career Faculty (i.e. those at Associate Professor or Senior Lecturer). Please click here to view the flyer for more information.

The second workshop will help participants to identify common roadblocks to success for faculty across the career trajectory; recognize both traditional and emerging models of mentoring; explore how to design and implement a networked mentoring program; and discuss outcomes, best practices, and resources on network-based mentoring for use to by faculty and administrators. The intended audiences for this workshop are deans, associate deans, department heads, chairs, and directors. Please click here to view the flyer for more information.
