Strategies for Expressing Your Ideas in Group Discussions (Graduate Students)

Jan 11, 2024 06:00 PM to 07:15 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 11, 2024 05:15 PM

Do you sometimes find it challenging to express yourself with your peers, either due to feelings of nervousness or the speed of conversations? Would you like to feel more confident while participating in group activities and projects? 

In this interactive workshop, we will focus on how to manage nervousness and perfectionism while collaborating with others. And together, we'll co-develop practical strategies that you can immediately apply in your classroom and lab activities. 

Through group discussions and short activities, we will cover:
•    Identifying the causes of nervousness while talking with peers
•    Recognizing your existing strengths and abilities in group discussions
•    Brainstorming ways to get involved instantly in a conversation
•    Setting personal goals that are achievable and realistic

This workshop has been designed for international students and/or those who use English as an additional language (EAL). However, those with different lived experiences are also welcome to participate. Undergraduate students are also encouraged to attend!
