Developing professional skills is an essential component of a graduate student's career. Whether it's speaking at a conference, learning how to network with other academics, or preparing your first vitae, we realize there's some essential skills that may not be taught in your discipline. We've put together our Professional Development Workshop Series to help you out.

The PREP Model
We've based our workshop selections around the PREP model, coined by Michigan State University. The acronym embodies four areas that we believe are essential for your success.
- Planning: Graduate school isn't easy. Proper planning however can dramatically reduce stress and anxiety and get you on the road to achieve your academic goals.
- Resilience: Being resilient is an important trait for managing both your personal and professional lives.
- Engagement: This is a must to be involved in the academic world around you, to take advantage of opportunities and attain your goals.
- Professionalism: This is a core competency of any graduate student.
The UNT Graduate Student Teaching Excellence Program is designed to provide online, workshop-style training over essential topics that every university-level instructor will need to engage adult learners at all levels and support student success in the classroom.
