Program Management and the PhD: Professional Development in the Field

Beth in Jamaica

When I was accepted into my PhD program, I’ll admit I was afraid of becoming an armchair academic – pulled out of the field for four years, rapidly losing the skills I learned at work. Receiving a fieldwork grant was a great opportunity to maintain my program management skills during my studies.

The Grad Writing Café: an antidote to my weekly writing hurdles

Students working

For over a year now, the Writing and Communication Centre (WCC) has been hosting weekly group writing sessions on Fridays from 9am-12pm. Graduate students in attendance follow the Pomodoro technique where they write for 25 min followed by a 5-min break. It is a fantastic idea but just like everyone else, it was difficult to make the Writing Café a part of my routine.
