Effective Mentoring in the Age of Zoom (Online Roundtable)

Wed, 30 Sep 2020 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

This online workshop will be offered on Tuesday, September 29 from 4:15-5:45 PM, and Wednesday, September 30 from 9-10:30 AM. Register for either using the link below. 


How can we establish and nurture mentoring relationships online? This guided roundtable conversation provides some suggestions for transferring common mentoring activities online, especially those focusing on the early stages of a mentoring relationship, with a particular focus on questions of access, inclusion, and mentoring across differences. In addition, the conversation asks how we might use forms of micro-engagement to support the current needs of mentoring partners in a flexible manner. Finally, the roundtable provides access to resources that will be helpful especially in mentoring early career faculty at JMU.


Faculty participants will make progress toward these outcomes:

  • Developing and fostering productive mentoring and networking relationships; and
  • Adapting good mentoring practices to an online environment.

Our programs are intended for JMU faculty or staff only. If you are a graduate student or administrator and would like to attend, please sign up and leave a note at the end of the survey.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please describe any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, etc.) you want us to know about in the registration survey. You may also reach out to us personally at Tiffany Runion, or (540)860-0524.
