Peer Mentoring Group for Doctoral Candidates

19.01.2016 - 01.03.2016

A series of four sessions

Peer mentoring is a powerful tool for doctoral candidates to help each other manage challenging situations that arise during their doctoral studies. At the core of any peer mentoring session are the cases (i.e. the questions or problems) raised by the participants. Over four sessions, participants will practice using their own experiences and backgrounds in order to formulate and tackle cases. The goal of the four sessions is to train participants to conduct peer mentoring sessions among themselves, without the supervision of an external trainer.

The group will meet on 19 January, 2 and 16 February, 1 March 2016, 17:30pm - 20:30pm.

The following topics will be covered:

  • How to structure and conduct sessions of peer mentoring based on the success team concept
  • What peer mentoring offers? The importance of asking the right questions in effective peer mentoring
  • Support others: How to listen and ask helpful questions - basic questioning and listening techniques
  • Variation in the process: Different methods for group consultation
  • Working with diversity: group organization and dynamics
  • Possibilities and limitations of group mentoring
