Wow! I can’t believe that we are already halfway through November! This semester really seems to be flying by, but I am looking forward to Thanksgiving Break before the final grind at the end of the semester.
Over the past month, several of the fabulous graduate students that organized graduate school and graduate student related sessions for WE11 have been writing up summaries about their sessions. I have posted them all here on the blog so that you can read through them and cram in some graduate student professional development.
Having attended several of these types of sessions at WE Conference over the past few years, I am sure that we had record attendance for graduate student related sessions! If you were there, I am so glad you were able to join us, ask questions, and make these sessions a success. If not, hopefully you can sift through the summaries to see what you missed — and be excited to join us next year at WE12!
All the sessions are under the “WE11” category, but I’ve linked them all here for your convenience. If you have any questions or comments, I invite you to leave them in the comments section and we’ll get back to you!
