Managing Board Research in Progress Mentoring Program

Do you have questions about an educational project?

Would you like a 20-minute consult with the IEE Managing Board?

The IEE welcomes the opportunity to offer advice and mentoring to those engaging in education scholarship. All recipients of IEE grants periodically present to the IEE Managing Board to make project updates as well as to receive feedback and guidance.

To that end and to provide further help to those considering a project in education scholarship, IEE recently established Office Hours for faculty to informally chat with members of the IEE Managing Board or the Office of Assessment and Evaluation.

IEE has also created the Managing Board Research in Progress Mentoring Program which is intended to give SOM faculty the opportunity to present ideas, including those early in the process, to the IEE Managing Board. We reserve time (9:00-9:45 a.m) at each of the board meetings which occur the 4th Wednesday of each month, to advise and mentor faculty on projects. Space may be limited, but will do our best to accommodate everyone.

If you are interested in presenting your idea or budding project to the managing board, please contact us at and include the following:

  • A brief description of the (proposed) project
  • The specific areas, or questions, with which you need help

All those chosen to present will first meet briefly with Dr. Joseph Cofrancesco, the Director of the IEE, or one of the members of the board.

What to Expect at the Meeting:

-  Presentation of the proposed project and areas with which you need help (5-7 minutes)
- There will be a discussion with the board (10-20 minutes), including:

  • Specific feedback and suggestions on the project
  • Suggestions for other types of projects or approaches that may be useful to consider
  • Discussion on how to ensure the project is successful, including dissemination
