Shut Up & Write
Shut up & Write are organised writing sessions, designed to help students overcome isolation and create social opportunities. Not to mention they’re a great way to stop procrastinating. Shut Up & Write consists of four 25-minute ‘sprints’ with a 5-minute break in between. During a sprint, your aim is to write as many words on your topic or assignment. During the breaks, you can make new friends, and generally connect with others studying in isolation during COVID-19.
The Self Care Series
The Self Care Series is a new initiative diving into all things self-care and wellbeing for MGSE students. Each session will feature a guest speaker focusing on an area of expertise. Some sessions will discuss self-care on a personal level, while other sessions will discuss self-care on a professional level and what you can do in the classroom to manage the wellbeing of yourself and your students.
