Student Workshop Series – Summer 2020

Fletcher Skill-Building
Workshops

Summer 2020

This series, offered free of charge to current Fletcher students and recent graduates, offers workshops throughout the summer for you to sharpen the skills you will need to excel in your studies and career.

Coordinated by Fletcher’s Office of Executive Education in partnership with Ginn Library and the Data Lab at Tufts and in close consultation with Fletcher’s Office of Career Services, these sessions will allow you to advance your skills in data analytics, knowledge of databases, writing, communications, diplomatic tradecraft, and project management.

Workshops in June have already been scheduled, but additional workshops in July are forthcoming. All times of workshops are noted in EDT.

Workshop registration is facilitated via Tufts LibCal. Please only register for workshops if you intend to participate in them, as spaces are limited. While Fletcher faculty, staff, and incoming students are welcome to sign up for workshops, priority will be given to current students and recent graduates in cases of capped enrollment.

Besides the synchronous sessions, you are invited to explore a host of asynchronous resources available to Fletcher students free of charge.

Fletcher students and alumni are also eligible for discounts of up to 50% on online courses offered through the Digital Frontiers Institute. Please contact Fletcher’s Office of Executive Education (FletcherExecEd@tufts.edu) to get discount codes to use at checkout.

For more information, please contact Arik Burakovsky (Arik.Burakovsky@tufts.edu).
