Workshop Overview

Facilitating Entering Research is a two-day “train-the-trainer” workshop designed to increase the capacity for undergraduate and graduate research mentee trainings offered at colleges and universities, research institutes, and governmental organizations.

During this workshop, participants are introduced to Entering Research, a mentee training curriculum designed for undergraduates and graduate research trainees in STEM disciplines. The Entering Research curriculum supports research trainee development in the following seven areas: research comprehension and communication skills; practical research skills; research ethics; researcher identity; researcher confidence and independence; equity and inclusion awareness and skills; and professional and career development skills.

Workshop participants learn evidence-based approaches to mentee training, gain facilitation skills needed to design and implement training at their institutions, and build their own custom curriculum and implementation plan using a backward design approach.
