  • Edna Fernandez – ASLO intern Sep 2018 – Mar 2019 during launch of LOREX, interacted with students at ASM and helped with program communications during her internship;
  • Maha Cziesielski  - LOREX assistant summer and fall 2019, participated as mentor and gave presentation at ASM;
  • Brittany Schieler - ASLO Sci Comm intern Apr 2019 to present; working with students on their blogs and assisting with program communications
  • Eilea Knotts – ASLO Sci Comm intern Jan 2020 to present; participant in the first cohort of LOREX; working with first cohort students to create a living handbook on how to conduct international research; working on the formal mentoring software to facilitate engagement and communication among and between LOREX cohorts.

Formal Mentoring Program using the software company, Qooper to maximize engagement and interactions

  • In addition to allowing hosts and student participants to match, this platform allows students to match with each other as well. This creates an opportunity to facilitate peer-to-peer mentoring between cohorts across years and sites.
  • The group discussion feature allows for interactions beyond a 1:1 relationship to occur. This is especially useful for any collaborative writing projects.
  • The auto-match algorithm enables participants to find and make connections they may not have made otherwise.
  • The platform provides the ability for mentoring pairs to chat, video call, set meetings, share resources, and set goals and assignments.
