The Science of Effective Mentorship

Layne Scherer, NASEM; Erin Dolan, University of Georgia

Slides

Identifying effective practices of mentorship in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) is a science in itself. This session will provide an opportunity for mentors and program directors to share their principles and practices of mentorship in diverse career development with the Committee on the Science of Effective Mentoring in STEMM of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. We will present a brief overview of the history of the Committee and some the research on effective mentoring in STEMM. We will also include a brief discussion of the topics of conversation we will lead during the mingling session that follows, including styles of mentorship, models of mentorship, resources for mentorship, and the future of mentorship. Representatives from the committee will be available for further discussion. Concepts and ideas developed during the session will be shared with the Committee on the Science of Effective Mentoring in STEMM of the National Academies. The committee will issue a final report and also create an online interactive guide of effective programs and practices that can be adopted and adapted by institutions, departments, and individual faculty members. More information about the project can be found at www.nas.edu/mentoring.
