Updated Schedule Announcement

December 7, 2020

We are pleased to announce that Graduate Education at Work in the World isĀ confirmed for February 18-19, 2021! Thank you all for your patience during this unusual time.

We will structure this as a condensed but more participatory program. Our main goal is to gather this incredible group of people and collectively imagine new futures for graduate education; our hope is that this updated structure will help us to do that within the current circumstances.

Here is a tentative schedule:

Thursday, 18 February 2021

  • 12:00pm – 1:15pm EST: Welcome and Plenary Session
  • 2:00pm – 3:15pm EST: Discussion Groups

Friday, 19 February 2021

  • 12:00pm-1:15pm EST: Lightning Talks
  • 2:00pm – 3:15pm EST: Lightning Talks or Discussion Groups
  • 4:00pm – 5:15pm EST: Closing Remarks, followed by Networking/Social Event

If you planned to present in the initial conference, we invite you either to present on your original topic as a 4-5 minute lightning talk, or to lead a small-group discussion with fellow participants. You are also welcome to attend and be a part of the discussions without presenting. No matter what, we hope that everyone will participate! Please sign up here by December 10, 2020, so we can finalize the schedule.

See you soon!
