For mentors of research trainees. It was originally developed for mentors across science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) disciplines at different career stages, working with undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty.
An evidence-based, active learning curriculum designed to level the research playing field for undergraduate and graduate research trainees from historically underrepresented groups, introduce trainees to the culture of research, support development of the skills trainees need to successfully navigate the research training environment and their mentoring relationships, and create a more welcoming research environment for all trainees. This curriculum was originally developed for use with trainees across science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical (STEMM) disciplines.
An active learning approach designed for post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty to support development of the skills needed to successfully navigate the research training environment and proactively manage their mentoring relationships. The curricula integrate topics from Entering Research and Entering Mentoring to develop mentoring up skills. These curricula were originally developed for use with trainees across the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) disciplines. These curricula address important topics and concepts in research mentoring and training by creating learning communities and engaging post-doctoral scholars and junior faculty in activities, assignments, case studies, and facilitated discussions to solve mentoring dilemmas and share successful mentoring up strategies.

For students whose experience with science has been primarily in the classroom, it can be difficult to identify and contact potential mentors, and to navigate the transition to a one-on-one, mentor-student relationship. This is especially true for those who are new to research, or who belong to groups that are underrepresented in research. The Entering Research curriculum offers a mechanism to structure the independent research experience, and help students overcome these challenges.
Brad Hughes, UW-Madison Writing Center's Emeritus Director, has distilled and adapted aspects of the Entering Mentoring text into a short, writing-specific overview that many MTLE fellows have found useful.
