As part of our commitments to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and HR Excellence in Research Award, two research mentoring workshops will be held on Thursday 15 September.
Effective mentoring involves not only knowledge and expertise grounded in research and organisational experience, but also the fundamental skills of effective listening and questioning and an ability to generate insight and convert that into accountable action.
This workshop is an opportunity to:
o Understand the context for research mentoring at Northumbria
o Hear from successful mentors and mentees
o Share good practice with peers and colleagues
o Work practically through some core mentoring approaches including:
o a practical model for mentoring conversations
o setting accountable actions
Whether established or new to mentoring at Northumbria you are encouraged to attend one of the workshops. This is also a good way to meet other mentors and refresh or learn new mentoring techniques. If you are still in the early stages of your research career and are interested in developing your mentoring skills, you are also welcome to attend.
Workshop Dates and Times:
Thursday 15th September 2016, 09.30 – 12.00, City Campus
Thursday 15th September 2016, 13.00 – 15.30, City Campus
If you wish to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring extension 4343.
A Research Mentoring Framework has been developed as part of the Researcher Development Programme to ensure all research-active staff have access to mentors. As part of the framework, regular training opportunities are provided for existing mentors and those interested in developing their mentoring skills or becoming a mentor in the future.
