Collaborative Research and Mentorship in the Era of COVID: A Roundtable Discussion

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Graduate students and postdocs are integral parts of multidisciplinary research teams at Duke. Like faculty, they work closely with and mentor undergraduate researchers. Undeterred by the pandemic, graduate students and postdocs found new ways to connect with students last summer. At this virtual roundtable, we will hear from graduate students and a postdoctoral researcher who took collaborative research online. Panelists will reflect on their experiences organizing remote symposia and serving on remote research teams such as Bass Connections, Data+, and Story+. Panelists will reflect on their experiences serving on remote research and symposium teams in summer 2020 and participate in an informal discussion on mentorship and teamwork during these uncertain times.

This event is sponsored by The Graduate School and is part of the Mentoring and Communication Series co-sponsored with the Office of Postdoctoral Services. Questions? Contact The Graduate School’s professional development team at
