Whether you are moving directly from your undergraduate degree or returning after some time away, the first term of graduate school will challenge you to expand skills critical to your success. Two of the most essential skills needed to thrive are reading and writing. This new, four-part Rackham/Sweetland workshop series will showcase reading and writing practices for new graduate students that will inform your approaches to reading and writing through the course of your graduate career.

How Do You Conceptualize Your Time in Graduate School?: From the Physical to the Philosophical

This workshop will address time management strategies, and effective habits and motivation for early graduate school success.

Time management and productivity may not seem like an exciting topic, but harnessing concrete tactics and strategies for how to maintain autonomy and agency over your own schedule is a crucial skill in graduate school. You will find yourself juggling multiple, and often competing, priorities– and many of them have to do with writing… lots, and lots of writing! This 50-minute Rackham/Sweetland workshop will address time management strategies across scales (from pomodoros to physical planners to semester and year-long planning), as well as considerations regarding habits and motivation. The earlier you find what works for you, the more you can tailor your schedule to fit your life instead of the other way around!
