Rejections and Resilience in Academic Life

Professional Development Workshop

Thurs, Feb 25, 2021 

Delivered Virtually on Zoom
RSVP to:

Your formal training as a historian takes place in classes and seminars, writing a cognate paper, taking comprehensive exams, and producing a doctoral dissertation.  But there are other facets to an academic career, including public speaking, networking, effective writing, publishing, applying for grants, and teaching.  These are not always addressed directly or explicitly in your formal studies.  The purpose of the PDW is to help prepare you for the many "other" parts of an academic career (as well as careers outside academe).

Academic life almost inevitably involves rejection and perceived rejection. How should we deal with the setbacks and challenges of your academic life? What is resilience and how can we cultivate resilience in our work and personal lives? Melanie-Anne Atkins (Centre for Teaching and Learning) and Rob MacDougall will interview each other on these topics; as always, we also want to hear from you.
