(De)Constructive Criticism: Strategies for Giving and Receiving Feedback Within the Supervisory Relationship
Tuesday, April 23, 2019           
Cohon University Center, Danforth Conference Room       12:00-1:30pm
This workshop is about the process of giving and receiving feedback, particularly as it relates to navigating the supervisory relationship. We will begin by discussing our relationship to receiving critical feedback from others and the ways that feedback is internalized. We will then explore avenues for making the feedback process bidirectional, exercising agency along the way and developing ways to communicate that with professors. Finally, this workshop will examine the relationship between the thesis/dissertation process and students’ sense of self-worth as well as their relationship to the work itself.
This program is co-sponsored by the Graduate Education Office and Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS)
