Graduate Events & Competitions
It is amazing when you look, just how many events are held on campus. Whether they are run by graduate students, the School of Graduate Studies or other departments, events rely on volunteers. As we here of events looking for volunteers we will post the details and who to contact to get involved. Some events already looking for help are:
Graduate Sharing of Teaching & Learning Strategies
Rarely do we take the time to reflect on our own teaching, let alone share our experiences (both good and bad) with our colleagues. I have created a teaching and learning group to do just that. The group will meet monthly or every other month starting next week and activities would likely involve discussions of various pedagogical matters, sharing of teaching and learning strategies, exploring new and innovative methods in teaching, possibly trying out some of these methods, attending and critiquing lectures, etc.
Our next meeting is Monday December 16th, 2013 from 12:00 to 2:00 PM in Biosciences Room 3112. The topic for this meeting is "engaging students in the learning process, whether that be in lecture, lab, tutorial etc".
If you have questions or are interested in attending please e-mail Amanda Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Presenters Wanted for Material Matters Winter Term
Material Matters is an interdisciplinary graduate student discussion group that meets every Wednesday from 1:30-2:30pm at Speaker's Corner in Stauffer Library. Each meeting starts off with a 10-15 minute presentation from a graduate student, and is followed by an open discussion. We are currently looking for presenters for the winter term.
Presenting at Material Matters is a great opportunity to workshop your research or to prepare for a conference presentation in a non-intimidating environment (no supervisors here!) and receive interdisciplinary perspectives on your research from fellow graduate students.
To sign up to present, for more information, please email email@example.com.

2014 Water Research Centre Student Conference
The Water Initiative for the Future (WatIF): 2014 Graduate Conference will be the first national water conference hosted at Queen’s University. WatIF is novel in the fact that it is organized by a multidisciplinary group of graduate students for graduate students. Designed to provide students from across Canada an opportunity to share their research, the Conference will provide a multidisciplinary environment to encourage the flow and communication of ideas. This will be accomplished by bringing together over 300 of the brightest graduate students from across disciplines (policy, health, engineering, geography, biology etc.) and regions of Canada who have one common passion: Water!
Of course with any event, volunteers are needed. If you would like the opportunity to gain valuable experience by working on this conference and having the opportunity to network with students and companies alike, then consider joining the team.
The WatIF: 2014 Graduate Conference will run May 4th - 6th, 2014. For more information on how to get involved please visit: http://www.waterresearchcentre.ca/watif-2014.html
Call for Abstracts Deadline: December 31, 2013. To submit an abstract please visit: http://www.waterresearchcentre.ca/submit-abstract.html
