The AERA Division C Graduate Student Seminar was held Thursday and Friday morning. Roughly 25 mentor-graduate student pairs came to learn about developing a research trajectory, conducting effective teaching, and ways to secure grant funding. Picture here is Kelly Rodgers from UT - San Antonio, discussing how to complete your dissertation and overcome some of the obstacles. If you are a graduate student who will be nearing or at the dissertation phase next year, consider applying for this seminar. There is a similar seminar for New Faculty, which provides a venue for senior scholars to share their insights about being successful in academia.
