Becoming More Productive: Helping Graduate Students Teach Each Other About Workflow Strategies [POSTER]
MetadataShow full item record
Our Library has been working over the past few years on a project to create workflow workshops for and by graduate students. The program has taken on various iterations, and reached its “aha” moment last year, when the library—in partnership with the University's Graduate School-- recruited groups of 3-4 graduate students from the social sciences, life and physical sciences and humanities, and then asked them to share their workflow strategies with other grads from across campus. This very successful workshop, held March 2015 in our library, was attended by over sixty graduate students, and we plan to make this an annual event. Here was the workshop description on the events calendar: “The Library and the Graduate School are co-sponsoring “Becoming More Productive,” a workflow workshop for graduate students on Wednesday March 18, 2-4 pm in the Library. This engaging and informative session will allow you to learn from fellow graduate students a range of strategies for gathering, storing, organizing and synthesizing all your information and data for your research and teaching. Come learn to be more productive!” This poster will outline the program’s history, how it came to be, the logistics involved and the outcomes. The goal is to share ideas and show how easy it would be for other USAIN libraries to host similar programs.
