Approach to Mentoring: I am a strong believer in mentoring and see it as something that should be seen more widely as a fundamental expectation as a senior academic. I have been involved in mentoring relationships both from the perspective of being mentee and mentor. My approach is one where I look to support a mentee through listening to the identified issues/challenges, offering my own experiences and being a critical friend as a means to encouraging conscious reflection.
