The Research Training Institute (RTI) team is pleased to announce the new peer coaches for the 2023 RTI online program: Andy Hickner, Christi Piper, Erin Reardon, Kearin Reid, and Valerie Vera. Each coach is not only a successful researcher but is also enthusiastic about continuing to learn from and contribute to the RTI community.
RTI’s peer coaches reflect diverse backgrounds and experiences and are selected from previous RTI Fellow graduates. Each is assigned to a mentor group and supports the RTI program by sharing their experiences, offering encouragement, celebrating wins, and helping the participants achieve their unique research goals. Peer coaches provide support throughout the year-long research process and enrich the RTI experience for the participants.
The peer coaching program has fostered meaningful professional growth opportunities for the peer coaches and at the same time has provided authentic, engaging, and high-quality learning experiences for our participants.
