Fall is in the air! Classes are in full swing, the temperatures are starting to drop, and the pumpkin spice invasion has begun. Taking a note from pumpkin spice, MyNRMN is also working to provide everything you need. This month we have added a bulk upload feature to the Jobs & Internships Board, we’ve created a quiz/survey feature for the My Courses, we’re on the cusp of releasing a new course, and we have a publication documenting our success stories.

Jobs & Internships Board + Bulk Upload
Thanks to our network of over 20,000 members, MyNRMN’s Jobs & Internships Board has taken off! This is large part to our members sharing postings from their other networks and affiliations. However, we have found that most of these other networks and affiliations often have more than 1 or 2 postings that they would like to share. Thus, we’ve created a bulk upload feature to make creating the postings a breeze! Right now the bulk upload feature is only available to MyNRMN System Administrators, so if you would like to use this for your organization, simply email email@example.com with your request and someone from the NRMN team will reach out to facilitate the process.
My Courses: New Quiz/Survey Tool & New Course
In July 2020 we launched the NRMN Unconscious Bias Course and we have been so thrilled with the results that our next course is even bigger. In fact, it’s so big that it’s actually two separate courses: Launching Research Parts 1 & 2. Part 1 is on the cusp of being released and Part 2 will follow shortly thereafter. But that’s not all – alongside these courses also comes the My Courses Quiz and Survey Builder. Now, when one of our partners has an idea for a course to share with the MyNRMN community, they will also have access to a quiz and survey tool, allowing them to include pre-tests, post-tests, course surveys, solicit feedback, and more! You’ll see this feature in use in Launching Research Part 1. If you have an idea for a course that you would like to share with the MyNRMN community, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every month we share the newest MyNRMN features both here in the newsletter and in NRMN’s How to Leverage the NRMN Network’s Webinar Series. While we love showcasing everything that’s new and exciting within the network, we also recently explored how amazing it is to look back and see what all we’ve accomplished in the few short years since NRMN’s inception in 2014. Take a moment to relive MyNRMN’s memories and accomplishments by reading “MyNRMN: A national mentoring and networking platform to enhance connectivity and diversity in the biomedical sciences,” by Toufeeq Ahmed, Jay Johnson, Zainab Latif, Nan Kennedy, Damaris Javier, Katie Stinson, and Jamboor K. Vishwanatha. You can find this and other NRMN publications on NRMNet’s Publications Page: https://nrmnet.net/publications/.
