During Welcome Week, we will (twice) be holding a workshop for PGT students that will help you get off to the right start this year. You’ll learn about the resources that are available during your degree and acquire skills you’ll need to manage your workload. You can sign up by following these links:
We’ll start by introducing people from the School of PPLS and the Institute for Academic Development who are there to help you succeed. Next comes a look at how to use academic software to organise your notes and papers. After that, we’ll use modified Gantt charts to budget your allocated learning and teaching hours so that you won’t run into trouble at the end of the semester. Finally, we will split into smaller groups by subject area for discussions with PhD tutors.
Speakers include Dr Alistair Isaac (School PG Director), Abby Pooley (Senior Student Leader; Psychology PhD student), Dr Jenna Mann (IAD Academic Developer), Dr Lucia Michielin (EFI Digital Skills Training Manager), Dr James Donaldson (PPLS Skills Centre Manager), and members of the PPLS Postgraduate Office.
Lunch (and a snack) will be provided.
