  • How to Set Goals and Positively Meet Them (webinar)
    Tuesday, Sep. 23, 12:00 pm

    The latest research in positive psychology has shown that people who have goals are happier and more successful. People who write down their goals are more likely to meet them and people who set the "right" goals (intrinsic, measurable, approachable goals, to name a few) are more productive and successful.  In this workshop you will learn about the science of goal setting and how to set the right academic goals to help you thrive and enjoy your semester.  Participants will also learn how to develop the most important qualities you need for success (i.e., perseverance and self-regulation) and leave with a 30-day academic action plan.

  • Using Your Strengths to Succeed In and Out of the Classroom (webinar)
    Tuesday, Sep. 30, 12:00 pm

    Research in positive psychology has found that across cultures, there are 24 strengths that most people have. Knowing and using your top 5 "signature strengths" can help you increase "flow" moments (when we are totally immersed and engaged in what we are doing) and lead to more enjoyment, satisfaction and success. Research has shown that people achieve more when they use their strengths and learn how to manage their weaknesses. In this workshop you will learn how to apply your strengths to your current academic opportunities and challenges and develop an action plan to help you use your strengths in and out of the classroom. ALL participants should take the Values in Action Strength Finder Questionnaire at www.authentichappiness.com and bring your list of strengths to the workshop.

  • Gaining Grammar Confidence (webinar)
    Thursday, Oct. 9, 12:00 pm

    Effective communication greatly benefits from a confident command of grammar. The audience who reads our writing often forms a first impression of us by our use of grammar, punctuation and language: write a sentence fragment, misplace an adverb, or wield apostrophes and commas incorrectly, and readers may question our judgment or care. Yet the rules for writing correct sentences can seem mysterious and endless. In this workshop, we will discover the pleasure of gaining confidence in a command of fundamental grammar and punctuation prescriptives; we will feel empowered by learning to spot and repair sentence fragments, run-ons, misuses of who and whom, incorrect pronoun use, subject and verb disagreement, double negatives, unnecessary and missing commas, and incorrect uses of apostrophe, semicolon, and colon. We will demonstrate how our communications improve by applying these grammar tools to a series of short writing exercises. To participate you need a computer with voice internet transmission capability (VoIP) or a computer and a phone. Gaining access to the webinar is a two-step process. First, pre-register at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/903201390 by inputting your name and email. Once pre-registered, you will receive (within seconds) a confirmation email.

  • Lifting the Curtain on Powerful Persuasive Speaking (webinar)
    Wednesday, Oct. 15, 12:00 pm

In this workshop, we will go 'inside' persuasive messages in an attempt to understand how they work and why they work. Learn how to develop the mindset of a salesperson and convince your audience to 'buy' the ideas that you are selling. To participate you need a computer with voice internet transmission capability (VoIP) or a computer and a phone. Gaining access to the webinar is a two-step process.

  • Writing Literature Reviews: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants (on campus)
    Wednesday, Oct. 22, 12:00 pm

    The literature review is a very important and useful part of any thesis, however students often view the review process as a steep mountain summit. In this workshop we will approach the literature review using scaffolding to reach this summit. Workshop content and format will provide an overview of the 'why' and 'what' of a literature review; students will then learn the basic steps in the process of conducting this kind of review, from developing the research question to finding relevant literature to managing the writing. A key learning objective is understanding how to: research and manage the literature; build relationships and connections between relevant theories and authors; and evaluate and analyze the literature. This workshop is led by Deborah S. Garson, Head of the Research and Instruction Services Department, Monroe C. Gutman Library, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

  • Revising and Editing Your Own Work (webinar)
    Thursday, Oct. 23, 12:00 pm

    When you finish your draft, or even if you are stuck while writing your draft, you begin the most important part of the writing process: revision. Revision encourages you to revisit, re-think, and re-envision with a fresh sense of discovery whether your paper communicates your ideas effectively. This webinar will offer practical tips on how to perform large-scale and small-scale revising of your targeted thesis ideas, structure, and language. We will use your actual writing samples to help you build concrete, analytical skills essential for successfully meeting your immediate writing goals and becoming your own best critic.

  • Perfectionism (webinar)
    Friday, Oct. 24, 12:00 pm

    Do you tend to push yourself harder than most people? Do you have trouble making decisions for fear that you will make the wrong one? Do you have an incapacitating fear of failure that is interfering with your academic performance and your personal well-being? If you answered yes to any of these questions then perhaps you are a perfectionist. In this workshop you will learn how perfectionism leads to procrastination, missed deadlines and increased academic anxiety that hinders performance.

  • APA & MLA Citing and Referencing: Why, When, How (on campus)
    Tuesday, Nov. 4, 12:00 pm

    Why do we use references? When do we reference? How do we use references? Which style do we use to cite references? Understanding when and why to cite, and how to properly cite is vital to any writing assignment. The citation styles required in academic writing can be confusing. What are the differences and similarities between the Modern Language Association (MLA) style and the American Psychological Association (APA) style? What are the elements of in-text citations and bibliographies for MLA and APA? This workshop has two components: 1) to introduce and examine two types of citation styles, American Psychological Association (APA) and Modern Language Association (MLA) for writing and formatting research papers; and 2) to discuss each style for understanding of how to format, cite and document a paper in either MLA or APA format. The workshop format is designed to offer you an introduction to either MLA or APA or both. The first part of the workshop will be learning how to cite your sources using MLA. The second half will be learning how to cite using APA. We will also briefly address the expectations and conventions of academic writing as well as techniques and resources that will help in citing and referencing. This workshop is led by Deborah S. Garson, Head of the Research and Instruction Services Department, Monroe C. Gutman Library, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Graduate school

  • Graduate School Essays (webinar)
    Wednesday, Oct. 8, 12:00 pm

    Graduate school admission committees look to the essays and personal statements for additional insight about the applicant's motivation, experience, and vision.

This webinar offers participants a look at graduate school essay questions and a chance to think through their options, their strategies, and their plans for completing this important part of the application. The handout can be found here on the CARC webpage. To participate you need a computer with voice internet transmission capability (VoIP) or a computer and a phone.
