edaMentoring for Career Development
(EDA 6370) – Fall Semester

This course is designed to assist graduate students in their current status and in their future careers in any field through the discovery of how mentoring, a commonly accepted phenomenon in business, industry, and academia, can enhance their professional development.  In this course, students will become acquainted with research on mentoring, but more importantly, they will acquire the skills to prepare themselves to seek a mentor.  These two goals will be accomplished through  reading of assigned texts and journal articles, engaging in interactions with other students, online course content, and completing assignments which will require a great deal of personal introspection and reflection. The course is delivered in an online format, mostly asynchronous, but with some synchronous sessions, as deemed appropriate by the professor. All synchronous sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend in real time.
