Creating the Seven Secrets of Highly Successful Research Students (For Advisors)

Mon, May 14 2018, 1:30 PM - 03:30 PM
/ Location: Mosher Alumni Hall

What can you do as an advisor to make completing a research-focused higher degree easier for your students and for you? The Graduate Division will be sponsoring a workshop led by Hugh Kearns of ThinkWell to ‚Äčteach the most useful secrets researchers have discovered for supporting graduate students.

This course gives ‚Äčadvisors (such as faculty members and postdoctoral researchers) practical strategies to deal with common challenges such as:

  • supervisor/student relations
  • dealing with writer’s block
  • attitude (or lack thereof!) in relation to the research higher degree (RHD) – it’s not a Nobel prize
  • getting your student to seek help when they are stuck
  • the student who never has enough time
  • treating the RHD like a job
  • keeping on going when the going gets tough

Hugh Kearns is recognized internationally as a public speaker, educator, and researcher. He regularly lectures at universities across the world and has recently returned from lecture tours of the UK and the US which included lectures at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Berkeley and Stanford.

His areas of expertise include self-management, positive psychology, work-life balance, learning, and creativity. He draws on over 25 years of experience as a leading training and development professional within the corporate, financial, education, and health sectors.
