PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS FOR THE HUNGRY MIND
Graduate students are some of the busiest people on our campus. Between all-day classes, a job (or two), an internship and a social life (if you’re lucky), who has time to eat, let alone feed your professional development? We want to help. Brain Food is a professional development series for the hungry mind. Offered in both the Fall and Spring semesters, this twice-monthly series will cover such topics as: grant writing, teaching artistry, portfolio reviews and higher education teaching preparation. These informal, conversation based sessions will be open to all graduate students…and we’ll feed you too! There is bound to be a relevant topic for you, so come out and enjoy some food for thought.
For detailed information about Brain Food – including specific date, times, and how to RSVP – please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
