Apply to Join The Carpentries 2021 Mentoring Program

Posted by j.laird on 10 December 2020 - 12:30pm

The Carpentries logoThe Carpentries are seeking mentors and mentees to participate in their mentoring program in 2021. Apply by Sunday 13 December.

Do you have a Carpentries goal that you are not sure how to accomplish? Or do you want to help your fellow instructors gain the skills and confidence they need to achieve their goals? If so join a Carpentries Mentoring group!

Mentors are certified instructors who facilitate a community of fellow instructors with similar interests.

Mentees are newly-certified or soon-to-be-certified instructors who are looking to develop their teaching skill set in a friendly, low-stakes learning community.

Each mentoring group will be formed around common interests and goals. You will spend 2-3 months working with your colleagues to refine your goals and make progress toward them in a format that works for your group, with support from the Instructor Development Committee.

For the upcoming cycle, mentoring groups will be formed around:

  • Facilitating online workshops
  • Developing confidence and skill in teaching
  • Strategies to build local communities
  • You are welcome to indicate other topics you would like to mentor or be mentored on in the application

There will be information sessions to learn more about our mentoring programs on December 10 at 3pm UTC and 11pm UTC. See more information on these meetings on the Community Discussions etherpad.
