Did you miss a fall workshop?

Amy Nuetzman leads the "Speed Reading for Graduate Students" workshop.
You can now see what you missed at our new PACE Workshop Archive. The archive links to workshop presentations and handouts as a resource for students who missed our fall workshops.

The workshop archive even features videos of our workshops that have been published to our new YouTube channel, including: We'll be sending a schedule of Winter Term workshops in early January. Topics for our winter workshops will include time management, grant writing, visually communicating your research, and graduate student funding.

Dance Your Ph.D. Contest
Do you ever have trouble explaining your dissertation research? You're not alone. In fact, this problem is so common that Science magazine thought it may be easier for some researchers to express their work through dance.

Each year Science magazine and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) sponsor a competition for doctoral students and Ph.D. recipients to explain their research through interpretive dance. Click here to watch the wonderfully creative 2013 contest winners.

If you'd rather stick to using words, try the Graduate School's 3 Minute Thesis Competition, coming Spring 2014.
