In a week from now, we will send an invitation to UBC grad school and other CREATE programs. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

What: IsoSiM workshop - Managing Unpredictability
When: Friday, Dec 13th, 2pm - 5pm, TRIUMF Auditorium

Managing Unpredictability

Graduate school is stressful, and much of that stress is unfortunately driven by factors outside your control. This workshop will help you work on one manageable aspect of stress – unpredictability, whether in the context of unpredictable questions, unpredictable conversations, or otherwise. The workshop will draw on exercises and strategies around three improv themes: going with the flow, changing the stakes, and committing and failing. This is an active workshop, so come prepared to engage, move around, and push your comfort zone.

Alan Shapiro is a Vancouver-based environmental professional and science communicator with a particular interest in water issues. He is a science communication and sustainability instructor at SFU and BCIT, Scientific Communications Manager at STEMCELL Technologies, and co-founder of the non-profit Science Slam Canada. Alan has taught workshops and given talks on effective communication to students, researchers, and professionals across Canada.
