Facilitated Conversation: Navigating the Virtual World
Grad Rebels have had to overcome various challenges in the past couple of months, whether it’s been in their roles as students, graduate/research/ teaching assistants, parents, caretakers, and more. In light of our new norm, we invite you to join us for a conversation regarding challenges and best practices in navigating the virtual world.
By participating in this workshop you will:
- Discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted how we navigate entering the job market; teaching effectively; learning effectively; defending theses/dissertations/professional papers virtually, and more
- Express challenges you have faced in different areas and what the graduate community can do to best assist you
- Conversate with professors, career coaches, students, and online education experts
- Obtain tips and resources from a panel regarding the challenges and topics you brought up in the first part of this two-part conversation.
