Set up your Summer Series: The Art of Backwards Planning in Grad School

Jun 27, 2023 06:00 PM to 07:00 PM

Registration Deadline: Jun 27, 2023 07:00 PM

As grad students, we may often find ourselves under pressure to complete multiple tasks, all with similar deadlines. 

In this workshop, we will explore backwards planning as a technique for building a pathway towards our goals, in contexts where we may face uncertainty navigating self-directed work. By visualizing the necessary steps to completing complex goals, we can not only improve performance, identify and avoid unecessary activities, and become more motivated. 

We invite you to bring details on a project, paper, thesis, chapter, or piece of work that you may have due in the horizon. We will devote time in the workshop for you to actively backwards plan that work!
