GSRI 2019

Are you:

  • an incoming graduate student looking for research tips and advice?
  • a continuing graduate student hoping to boost your research skills?
  • an RA about to start work on a new or intensive research project?

Description

The Graduate Student Research Institute (GSRI) is a free and asynchronous 5-day online workshop for new and returning UW graduate students to learn the tools and strategies they need to research smarter, not harder. Participants with common interests will meet together in small online cohorts, supported by UW librarians and other qualified experts in their subject areas.

GSRI can help you to:

  • Learn practical skills and strategies for effective academic research
  • Become familiar with core tools and resources for research productivity
  • Connect with relevant support units across the UW campuses
  • Build community with other UW students and campus support staff

Duration

There are two separate sessions of GSRI being offered in Summer 2019. Both are online and asynchronous.

Session #1: August 26-30, 2019
Session #2: September 9-13, 2019
