We are developing guidelines to identify good practices and potential pitfalls in mentoring relationships.
In February 2017 the Society’s Council approved a working group to develop a set of mentoring guidelines for researchers at the instigation of the Early Career Researcher Forum Committee. The goal is to identify good practices and potential pitfalls in mentoring relationships, as an exemplar available to anyone.
The guidelines will cover a wide variety of contexts within the research and scholarly community, and will be widely circulated for review and input by others before being finalised.
Members of the working group are Dr Jane Allison (convenor), Dr Philip Steer, Associate Professor Daniel Stouffer, Dr Melinda Webber, Distinguished Professor Peter Hunter FRSNZ, Professor Richard Le Heron FRSNZ, Professor Linda Smith FRSNZ and Professor Margaret Brimble FRSNZ.
