Professional Development Workshop Series

Summer 2015 University Libraries Workshops

BR101- Business Research Certification Program

  • Scholars Commons is pleased to host workshops on a wide variety of topics of interest to graduate students and faculty.  Click here  to see all workshops associated with this program. 

The Graduate School partners with the Career Center , the Office of Graduate Fellowships & Awards , the University Libraries , the Office of Distance Learning , the Center for Global Engagement , the Center for Intensive English Studies , and the Center for Leadership and Social Change  in offering professional development workshops during the academic year and summer terms as well. The University Libraries offers many research-oriented workshops that may be used to meet requirements of the Preparing Future Faculty and Preparing Future Professionals Certificates. Workshops are intended to provide opportunities for graduate students and postdocs to develop the following five core competencies: Communication, Teaching, Scholarly Development (advanced knowledge and skills), Professionalism (leadership, ethics, transferable skills), and Career Development. Each workshop listed below has one or more competency labels. Workshops are also intended to be appropriate at one or more stages of graduate study or postdoctoral experience:  Early stage, Middle stage, Late stage, or All stages. Students and postdoctoral scholars may attend workshops more than once and during any stage. The labels simply provide suggested attendance timeframes and core competencies. Some of our workshops are conducted every other year.

  • For a catalog of professional development opportunities that recur on a regular basis, during the fall, spring, and/or summer semesters, every other semester or every other academic year, and may be appropriate for one or more of the five competencies described above, click here.

Summer 2015 Workshops:

PIE Coffee Hour & Teaching Workshop: Time Management: How Can I Do Everything? (PIE/PFF/PFP) [All Stages]

July 7, 2015; 3:30- 5:00 PM

Great Hall, 4th floor of the Honors, Scholars, and Fellows House

Presenter: Holly Hunt, Assistant Teaching Faculty, Academic Center for Excellence

Description: Graduate teaching assistants must learn to wear several hats at the same time: student, teacher, family member, and friend. Striking a healthy balance among these roles can be challenging. It may often seem like there’s not nearly enough time in the day to do all that needs to be done, let alone time to dedicate to playing each of these roles. This session will introduce graduate students to strategies and tools that can be used to more efficiently manage one’s time on a monthly, weekly and daily basis.
