Mentoring Program

We are pleased to announce the formation of a mutual mentorship program for Apgar members to support each other with specific aspects of our work in education. The inaugural group is being formed around curriculum design, with Drs. Steven Canfield, Elsa-Grace Giardina, James Noble and Delphine Taylor as mentors. We invite Academy members who are directing/revising courses, or moving into new teaching roles, to sign-up to work on a specific curriculum design project. Your engagement in the Mentorship Program will build your network of educators, provide mentorship on curriculum design from experienced educators, and support your peers.
