Reflection about mentorship by Ylva Lundkvist Fridh
A general impression was that I was of greater use for the undergraduate students the first 30 minutes of the “mentor mingle session”. In the beginning they had a lot of questions, were a bit confused and had just started to think about how to approach their topic. At that stage I felt that I did have some good advice to give – both in terms of reference literature they could check up and in terms of how to delimit the scope and scale of the study. So, I felt I did a contribution to the first two groups I spoke to. But after that, the other groups I sat down with had already started to discuss who in the group should do what or started to search for the literature they had decided to read into. By then, it felt more like I disturbed when I came by to talk to them.
