Professionalization: Professional development, Life skills, Academic development, and Networking
Start Date: 7/26/2019Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 7/26/2019End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:

In this short course, participants will work through activities to develop their academic professionalization skills by having a P.L.A.N. – tips on Professional development, Life skills, Academic development, and Networking.

Originally developed by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Louisville, PLAN is a framework for understanding and addressing the needs of students in the midst of graduate school or transitioning into junior faculty members.

Using the PLAN framework as a springboard, this session will provide one mini-workshop in each of the following areas:

  • Professional development – the tried, tested and true grant application.
  • Life Skills – snakes and ladders: Research, teaching, and service as a graduate student in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
  • Academic development (ideation) – visual mind mapping tools for project success.
  • Networking – lessons learned on how to avoid a conference flop.

Participants should come equipped with an understanding of their (proposed) research project or grant in mind. Participants should also take part in the google forms survey to help the instructor prepare the material (7 days in advance).

This course is a part of a series offered by the Laurier Summer Institute of Research Methods. You can register for this course and others running from July 15 to 26. Students (from any university) get 10% off. Faculty, staff and students paying by internal transfer also save on the tax.
