Tourism Seminar: Associate Professor Mahesh Subramony

29 May, 2018 - 11:00 to 13:30
Duhig Tower (2), Room D114

The Academic Journey: Opportunities, Pitfalls, and Destinations

Every academic journey is unique, with different starting points, milestones, obstacles, and destinations.

In this interactive forum, Associate Professor Mahesh Subramony will describe his own journey as a researcher, teacher, writer, reviewer, and editor; and reflect upon lessons learned along the way.

Some of these lessons will focus on the professional aspects of an academic life (e.g., how to create high-quality manuscripts and write such that reviewers will favourably evaluate the manuscripts, when to collect data and when to utilize archival datasets), while others will be more self-explorative (e.g., why friendships are important, does a healthy lifestyle play a role in success).

Questions and comments are welcome throughout the seminar. 

HDR students welcome, this will be a resource for your own research journey.
