The pandemic has upended the systems and structure that were once the norm of day-to-day graduate school life. Working from home creates new challenges with respect to setting boundaries, working independent of others, and depending on internal motivation to stay on-task. In addition, multiple barriers to motivation continue to be experienced: grief at what opportunities in the past were lost, shame or guilt on one’s present ability to focus, and future fear of what is yet to come.
Grab a beverage and some snacks and join us for a laid-back discussion of new and interesting research articles Thursdays at 4PM (via MicrosoftTeams). Students can sign up here to lead the discussion.
Scheduled talks are listed below.
