Time Management

In this online workshop you’ll learn how to make the most of every minute, avoid procrastination and other “time thieves,” and create achievable plans and schedules, based on project management best practices.

Practical Tips for Growing Your Network

Get the knowledge you need to build your network! Your time at graduate school/during your post doctoral fellowship will be filled with opportunities to make connections in and outside of your field. This short online workshop will give you the information you’ll need to make the most of each opportunity.
Start Date: Thursday, May 12, 2016

Online workshops run for a duration of two weeks and contain a series of videos, exercises, and content modules for the participants to cover. Participants can access the content and complete their exercises at any time during the 2 week duration. 

All grad students and postdocs can attend any Mitacs session, held anywhere in BC. Check the Mitacs website for additional offerings. 

As always, Mitacs sessions are at no cost but space is limited and seats go fast so sign up now!  (The workshops are free if you show up, but you are charged $50 if you do not show up. See their registration information.)
