January is National Mentoring Month. Mentoring helps students, beginning researchers, and early-career faculty persist and succeed in science. Below are some open-access, peer-reviewed resources from the Journal of Microbiology & Biology Education (JMBE) to help infuse more mentoring into your classroom or lab. 

 

 

HELPFUL RESOURCES FOR MENTORING NOVICE RESEARCHERS

M. Trujillo; Level: Undergraduate, Graduate, Early Career

Two resources for mentoring laboratory students and/or early career researchers are reviewed for their relevance and efficacy.  

 

COMPARING THE IMPACT OF COURSE-BASED AND APPRENTICE-BASED RESEARCH EXPERIENCES IN A LIFE SCIENCE LABORATORY CURRICULUM

C. Shapiro et al.; Level: Undergraduate

A research-based curriculum benefits all students; those participating in team-based research had similar learning gains to those participating in individually mentored research.

 

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES IN UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH PROGRAMS

J. M. Seeling and M. Choudhary; Level: Undergraduate

Guidelines for faculty who are mentoring undergraduate researchers.

 

BEYOND RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT: TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF OTHERS

R. McGee et al.; Level: Postdoctoral and Early Career

Resources for mentoring those just starting out in their own labs on the responsible conduct of research.
