Channels for mentoring


#1

Does anyone care to share opinions on what kind of channels are useful for communication between mentors and mentees of talks and posters ? Perhaps mentors/ees from 2017 ?

My first thought is email + Dropbox or similar.


#2

Probably Slack. I find that the best mentoring is helping someone get situated in the larger community.


#3

Good idea. I imagine both direct messaging and a mentoring channel would be useful… But, it can be a bit of work to get around the “out of space” messages when posting pdfs and the like


#4

Stick the PDF on Google drive or Dropbox etc and just public link it?


#5

Yeah that sounds good. Google drive / Dropbox + slack for chatting.
