Striving for Excellence in Undergraduate-Research Mentoring: The Challenges and Approaches to Ten Salient Practices

Written by Helen Walkington, Eric Hall, Jenny Olin Shanahan, Elizabeth Ackley, and Kearsley Stewart

Discussion Questions

  • Did any of the salient practices surprise you? Were the ones identified as most challenging or least challenging what you expected? Why/why not?
  • What are the contextual factors that might influence the practices that mentors found the most challenging? What barriers can you identify to addressing those challenges? How might you address those challenges on your campus?
