About this Event

Do you struggle to stay focused in lab when you’d rather be lounging on a beach? Do you hope to use the summer to finally write that paper, but are worried about burning out by fall? Do you dread turning down invitations from friends just so you can  finish up that literature review? In this Grad Studio, you will learn how to plan out your summer research effectively and schedule both productive time as well as time for relaxation.Through reflective activities, a calendaring refresher specifically designed for graduate students, and a “personal syllabus” approach, you can expect to learn tips and tricks for making your summer research plans efficient and manageable, with time during the Studio dedicated to drafting your own schedule. This studio is open to both masters and doctoral students in all disciplines.
