Event Description

Do you have trouble balancing your graduate studies and TA responsibilities? Do you stay up all night marking or preparing for class? Are you a procrastinator? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you. Please come to this workshop prepared to be open and honest with yourself. This workshop will begin by helping you to identify your time management strengths and weaknesses. You will also learn a number of tried-and-true methods and receive resources that will help you to gain control of your day to day life. Finally, you will have some time to reflect and assess what you have learned to determine what will be your personal best practices to manage your life as a TA moving forward. Any personal technology that you use daily (phones, tablets, laptops, smart watches, etc.) are welcome to join you in this workshop, but are not required.
