This virtual workshop will welcome campus workshop facilitator Dr. Pamela Yeh. During this workshop, we will explore the challenges of conventional wisdom about faculty mentoring and how those traditional ideas can fail to adequately address faculty needs. Dr. Yeh will introduce a needs-based framework to reimagine mentoring. Participants will have the opportunity to map their current mentoring network and create a plan to expand that network.
