Mentoring is an essential part of graduate school. Whether it be as a mentor or mentee, your interpersonal relationships in graduate school can make or break your experience.
The UC Davis BMCDB mentoring seminar is a great chance for you to interact with fellow students and discuss how to foster and maintain productive lab dynamics.
The seminar is based around the HHMI “Entering Mentoring” guide developed by HHMI Professor, Jo Handelsman, and her colleagues and co-founders of the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, raises questions about teaching expectations, mentoring as a function of training new teachers, and dealing with diverse learning styles, personal styles, ethnicity, experience, gender and nationality.
Jo Handelsman is a molecular biologist now at Yale: http://www.hhmi.org/grants/professors/handelsman_bio.html
Bruce Alberts is also really informative on the future of science mentoring and teaching: http://biochemistry.ucsf.edu/labs/alberts/ (plus his website has all of his editorial comments on science).
