GRADUATE STUDENT ONLINE WORKSHOPS
A Collaborative Project
McMaster Graduate Student’s Association
Graduate Student Association-University of Waterloo
Society of Graduate Students-Western University
The Graduate Student Online Workshops Project is a collaborative virtual event series focused on developing and sharing graduate student skills during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moving to an online model for content delivery has certain challenges over in-person seminars, but provides many opportunities including dramatically increased accessibility for cross-disciplinary knowledge sharing and networking among our fellow graduate students and between our universities.
Our technical workshops will be hosted by professors and fellow graduate students, and delivered intentionally for an interdisciplinary audience. Our Mental Health workshops will be facilitated by professional counselors.
All workshops will be hosted via Zoom webinar. Materials for each event will be posted on this website.
