Great Opportunity to Enhance your CV - Call for Volunteers!
The IED/CIE Programs Office organizes a year-long series of workshops and professional development events for all IED/CIE students, many of which are facilitated by volunteer IED/CIE doctoral students. Do you have an academic strength to share with your colleagues in a 1-hour workshop? Are you a whiz at Endnote? Exceptional at SPSS? Can you share your tips on how to get published or how to approach the 15-minute conference presentation? Facilitating a workshop is a wonderful service to our ITS community and a great CV-builder. Workshops are often co-facilitated. Please contact the Peer Advisors to discuss further. Thank you to all of our volunteers last year!
