Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Management Systems
During the 2018-2019 school year I worked as a mentor for undergraduate students in the STEM fields. The goal of this role is to help students develop professionally by reaching their academic and personal goals.
There are many conversations students in college do not have. Conversations that would help them prepare for today, tomorrow, and their future. For many students, a mentor can help them have those dialogues and expose them to resources and opportunities otherwise left undiscovered. What better way to do so than through local mentoring programs and graduate student mentors?1
Through the STEM Instructional program I learned different tools and methods to assess my teaching practices and to refine my teaching approaches to be a more effective mentor.
