Research Communications Feedback Sessions

Get one-on-one feedback about your research presentation or communications skills

My GradSkills is piloting general research communications feedback sessions for graduate students. Sign up for an in-person or online meeting with a My GradSkills facilitator to share your research and get feedback on your oral and visual communication skills. 


What is it all about?

The Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS) is constantly working to enhance the experiences of graduate students. That’s why FGS hosts competitions like Images of Research, and 3 Minute Thesis. Through these competitions students can participate in workshops, resources, and opportunities for one-on-one feedback about research communications. FGS would like to expand on these services by opening research communications training and feedback sessions to all graduate students. 

Additionally, it is important that students find the best possible support for their needs. Your participation in these sessions will help FGS to develop and create high quality materials and resources that are relevant to different student contexts (thesis-based and course-based, STEM, social sciences, humanities, creative fields, etc.).

Why should I participate?

  • You will have the opportunity to share elements of your research presentation and get immediate feedback about communications and presentation  
  • Your participation will help My GradSkills to develop more robust programming  

Who can participate?

  • Graduate students from any faculty  

When (and how) will these sessions happen?

  • Sessions are open daily (Mon-Fri)  from 8:30-4:30. Contact Felicia Glatz to sign-up for a session 
  • In-person or through Zoom
