What are our AGILE Scholars Reading?
Throughout the year, scholars were assigned readings that ranged from effective communication to tips on writing the dissertation, on-time graduation, and managing job interviews and visits. This summer, AGILE scholars are reading:
Stephen R. Covey's
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
The Heart of Higher Education
Professional Development Activities
In addition to the community meetings, AGILE scholars participated in a number of professional development workshops that focused on writing, research, career advancement, and wellness. This year's cohort also enrolled in a 3-week online writing workshop. Facilitated by the Florida Education Fund, the workshop was designed to ensure graduate student success in writing scholarly papers, and grant proposals.
