In this session, participants identify a mentoring situation that has been challenging for them and explore ideas about how to become more effective mentors. They learn about different conflict management styles, identify their own, and consider the potential uses and limitations of each style. They make mini-pond environments to explore ecological and environmental concepts. They create concept maps and brainstorm various contexts that potentially would support development of the mini-ponds.
