Working together for success! Peer mentoring (Workshop) on the 24th of October 2019

Peer Mentoring is the regular exchange about professional challenges with colleagues. Especially in the competitive environment of everyday scientific life, collegial exchange is an important space for reflection. Peer mentoring can be an important success factor in the professional development of one`s own professional role(s). The aim of the workshop is to enable the participants to advise each other  independently and solution-oriented on typical challenges of their everyday lives (e.g. doctorate, teaching, research). In addition, fixed groups are to be established that can meet in the future in a self-organised way for peer mentoring.

The workshop will be held in English language and is free of charge. The places in this workshop are limited and are assigned after the First-come-first-serve principle.
