Career Tools 2: How to Run a Meeting (Workshop)

Tue, 14 Nov 2023 2:00 PM - Wed, 15 Nov 2023 10:30 AM

This interactive workshop guides participants through a process in which they review meetings they either experienced as participants or plan to run as chairs: What is the purpose of the meeting? What alternative formats are available? How would the agenda look like? How can the meeting achieve its purpose? And, should it be a meeting?

The session then introduces some principles and approaches to create engaging meetings for a range of circumstances, building on practices in agile planning, community building, and the Liberating Structures movement.

Program Dates and Times:

  • Tuesday, 11/14, from 2-3:30pm at Rose Library 5211
  • Wednesday, 11/15, from 9-10:30am
    • Online (The Zoom link will be provided either with the email registration confirmation or by email the day before the event.)


Program Outcomes:

  • Participants will make progress towards building skills that will help them advance their careers.
  • Participants will make progress towards building productive relationships with colleagues.
