Time Management + Setting Goals

Friday March 4 2022 @ 10:00 am
to 11:30 am





10:00 am - 11:30 am

Event Type

Please join CGA members and Leslie Blood for our second Hidden Curriculum seminar in the series to discuss time management and setting goals!
The Hidden Curriculum seminars were developed by Amanda Donaldson, Galen Gorski, Colleen Murphy, Jenny Pensky, Adam Price, Christina Richardson, Araceli Serrano, and Margaret Zimmer* because much of the graduate school experience is focused on tangible and formal skill development surrounding research and teaching. These seminars focus on the informal “hidden curriculum”/"soft skills" in graduate school that can complement formal student learning to help individuals lead successful research careers.
The second seminar of this series will focus on time management, led by Leslie Blood from the CU Graduate School. Leslie currently leads the Endurance PhD/MA program and many of the professional development workshops at the university. She will discuss how to prioritize your work and manage your time in a way that will help you make deadlines. 
Please join us on Friday March 4th @10 am - 11:30 am MST on zoom to hear some tips and ask your own questions. In order to receive the zoom link, please RSVP using this form by Thursday March 3rd by 5 pm MST.
