Faculty Mentoring: Maintaining Effective Communication

Good communication is a key element of any relationship, and a mentoring relationship is no exception. As mentors, it is not enough to say that we know good communication when we see it. Rather, it is critical that mentors reflect upon and identify characteristics of effective communication and take time to practice communication skills in the session with their mentees. This interactive session is open to faculty in various mentoring/mentee roles, and is part of the Mentoring Academy, a series of events sponsored by the Center for Mentoring. Participants will receive a digital badge indicating their participation, and those who choose to attend eight (8) sessions within the Mentoring Academy will receive a credential indicating their completion of the series.

By the end of this session, mentors will be able to…

  • Communicate effectively across diverse dimensions including various backgrounds, disciplines, generations, ethnicities, positions of powers, etc.
  • Identify different communication styles.
  • Engage in active listening
  • Provide constructive feedback.
  • Use multiple strategies for improving communication (in person, at a distance, across multiple mentors, and within proper personal boundaries)

Facilitators:

  • Bruce Childers, Associate Dean, Strategic Initiatives; Chair, Department of Information Culture and Data Stewardship, School of Computing and Information; Co-Chair, Mentoring Academy
  • Joseph Ayoob, Associate Professor, Department of Computational and Systems Biology, School of Medicine and Co-Chair, Mentoring Academy

Monday, April 15 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
