Time Management Skills for Graduate Students and TAs – January 18, 2024

January 18 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

This event is part of the TA Institute, taking place from January 15-19, 2024


Eligibility: The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.

Are you struggling to balance the many tasks of being a Graduate Student and a Teaching Assistant? Has working online changed your workflow? Are you a procrastinator or someone just looking to learn and test out some new time management skills? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this session is for you! Through reflection and collaboration, we will develop strategies to mitigate distractions, prioritize tasks, and set goals around time management for the new semester and those yet to come.
