Mentoring Undergraduate Research in STEM Disciplines
Undergraduate research can be a meaningful component of a student's development at Notre Dame. The panel will discuss effective methods for mentoring undergraduate researchers. Good mentors are good teachers, they focus on the student's intellectual and professional development over time and adapt to individual needs. The same principles used in teaching, such as clear communication, active learning, prompt feedback, and high expectations, all apply to mentoring.
Session format: Each panelist will provide 5-7 minutes of insights on the topic followed by an active Q&A session.
