Resource Leader – Academic Writing
Peer-mentorship is one of the core strategies of Mobodunrin Dream Building Initiative (MDBI). Bearing in mind the obvious challenges that we confront in our society, this program is designed to accelerate the development of individuals that are interested in pursuing a career in the academia.
Our peer-mentorship strategy operates on a convenient model that enables one to develop remotely yet have partners in other parts of the world. We ensure that the experience of all our mentees count and their unique personality reflects in what they do. You can enrol in our peer-mentorship program for FREE. Our program focuses on activities that strengthen our mentees’ CRITICAL THINKING and ADAPTATION STRATEGIES. In the end, our mentees are able to identify problems, envisage opportunities, create useful knowledge and communicate effectively.
Our resource persons are vital to the goals we seek to achieve. While our resource persons are dispersed across the globe, Dr U. Donatus and Dr A. Awosusi are experienced partners coordinating the entire strategic framework of our mentorship program.
MDBI mentees are required to publish either an evidence-based opinion article, popular science article, or research article within 12-24 months of registration. We use this as a criterion to assess the development of our mentees. Our mentees work in groups to meet this criterion because strong collaboration is a culture we seek to strengthen in our society.
Our mentees will be able to request for letter of support for any application they are submitting once they have met our eligibility criteria.
