Description. While peer mentoring is most often associated with helping new students make the transition to graduate studies and a new departmental culture, the benefits of peer mentoring do not cease after a student’s first year. This workshop will discuss the ways students can build on peer mentoring relationships by transforming them into co-mentoring partnerships and developing alternative forms of peer mentoring such as reading and writing groups that benefit students in later stages of their graduate studies. This workshop will also discuss online networks that advanced students can draw on as mentoring resources.
Learning Outcomes. During this session, participants will:
- Be introduced to several models for sharing knowledge and resources among fellow students interested in supporting one another through co-mentoring.
- Be introduced to social networks that can extend their professional connections beyond the UofL campus.
- Identify ways in which their own professional needs might be met by peers within and beyond their program.
Presenters. Amy Lueck and Michelle Rodems.
