What participants say about the Facilitating Entering Research Workshop:

  • Having the opportunity to network with individuals from other universities who are working on similar things was invaluable. The facilitation was great and really helped me think through what I want to students in my program to take away from the experience.”
  • Super competent and informed facilitators…. The curriculum is so realistic and easy to use. I appreciate all the thought and hard work that has gone into it. “
  • “The access to the activities is so valuable.  I had been inventing my own "wheel" and to have honed and tested activities to use for these topics is a wonderful resource.
  • The group assembled—both facilitators and participants—was welcoming and eager to work together.  We openly shared ideas and tried to help one another answer questions.”
  • “At the [Entering Research] workshop,  I was able to connect with people in similar roles as mine and develop a community or network for myself.  Now I know who to contact when I have questions.  Thank you!”
