Abstracts


PhD Students Annual Review: Open Forum (Grad Connections/Brownbag Panel Series)

John Levis
(Director of Graduate Education, ENGL)
Teresa Smiley
(Graduate Program Staff Assistant, ENGL)
Carol Chapelle
(Area Group Coordinator, AL)
David Russell
(Area Group Coordinator, RPC)

Graduate Connections is partnering with the TESL Brownbag series to host this open forum on the new annual review process for graduate students in both the RPC and AL programs. Faculty members Carol Chapelle and David Russell, DOGE John Levis, and Grad Studies staff Teresa Smiley will describe the annual review process and requirements before opening the floor to questions from attendees. Responses on the recent survey indicate an interest in learning more about departmental and graduate college policies; since annual reviews will be required for all Ph.D. students from this year forward, we thought this policy-related panel would be especially useful! Coffee and snacks will be provided–please bring your own mug for coffee!
