2021-10-27: Mentor Office Hours

What’s this about? This is a time and space to advance a culture of mentoring in our community by:

  • Connecting with other OpenMRS mentors
  • Sharing mentoring tools and resources
  • Asking questions about mentorship techniques and tools
  • Discussing ways to succeed as a mentor

We can also do deep dives into some of the essentials for making mentorship work. For instance, we had a great conversation last week around giving and receiving feedback.

Who? Anyone interested in sharing and advancing their knowledge and skills via mentorship - as a mentor or as a mentee. @hadijah315 @herbert24 @jwnasambu @kdaud @sharif @suruchi

When? Join the conversation on Wednesday, 27 October at 8:30pm IST | 6pm Nairobi | 5pm Cape Town | 3pm UTC | 11am Boston | 8am Seattle

Where? Launch Meeting - Zoom


Thanks @jennifer for the reminder but am not in good position to attend.My apologies

Thanks for the heads up, @jwnasambu!

We had a few people join today’s Office Hours and we ended up diving deeper into giving feedback - specifically, how to actually give effective and constructive feedback (the “meat”). Here’s a recording for those who couldn’t join us today - or in case you want to go back for another listen.

Next week, we’re going to talk about how to handle different kinds of feedback, the good, the bad, and the ugly. And I’m hoping to hear how you might be using the tips from these sessions to give better feedback.
