Dealing with Criticism: Giving and Receiving Feedback
Vancouver Campus | 1:00pm–4:00pm
From the comments in red pen in the margins of papers to the peer review process to the eye-rolls and laughter of an audience during a presentation, much of the academic exercise of advancing knowledge is based on the concept of giving and receiving feedback. While the skillful exchange of feedback can be very fruitful, it is difficult to be criticized and it can be equally difficult to provide constructive negative feedback. In this workshop, we frame feedback as a resource and work through a series of exercises to improve how we formulate what we say to others, and how we process what others say to us. The skills developed in this workshop are applicable to academic and non-academic workplaces.
