GPLL50 - Being Productive in Grad School from Anywhere

It is no secret that grad school is a lot of work: books to read, papers to write, presentations to prepare, team meetings, a lot of Zoom calls, etc. Add on a job, a hobby, a family, or friends, and you can quickly feel overwhelmed and wondering how you will meet your academic goals.

Many grad students lack time. After all, it is our most valuable, finite resource. If you want to take control of your time, we highly recommend you take a little time for this workshop. The efficient use of your time will directly impact the quality of your work, your experience in graduate school, and your job prospects after graduation.

This year many of us will be working in home environments and online. We will discuss unique approaches to staying productive and managing projects from informal workspaces.

In this workshop, participants will learn about tips and tools to prioritize their tasks, plan their time, minimize procrastination and distractions, and ultimately be more productive. We will explore tools such as the time management matrix, SMART framework, and Pomodoro. The activities in this workshop provide space for you to plan your upcoming tasks while getting feedback and learning from the experiences of other students.


Learning Objectives


After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Create goals based on your personal tasks,
2. Identify tools and techniques to help you achieve those goals,
3. Review strategies to help minimize procrastination.
