Topic: What Now? Personal Narrative Prompts to Debrief Your Graduate Study Journey

The term "storytelling" has been used and abused so much that it loses its meaning. This research tries to play with stories as life lessons learned. We've often looked back from a major life experience and thought, what did we learn from that? And the first thing we try to do is tell a story about what happened. In this session, we will practice using story prompts to reflect on this wild adventure called "graduate school." Participants may not get to share their story in person, but they will leave with story ideas to flesh out later for those super-important job interviews, or their personal autobiography! If you don't tell your story, someone else will. 

(Tika) Kartika Putri is an MA candidate in the Adult Learning and Leadership program. For fun, she started the first TEDx event in Southeast Asia and grew the community for 10 years before retiring. For less fun and more money, she was a leadership development trainer and facilitator for businesses and communities all over Asia. 

Sliding Doors is a lively, pop-up set of talks given by and for members and affiliated members of the Teachers College community. The program consists of 10 one-time, community driven offerings that are open to faculty, students, and staff and conducted in a small, informal, impromptu setting; each session will last approximately 45 minutes, with 15 minutes devoted to open discussion and/or activity.

This event is co-sponsored by the Digital Futures Institute.

Please rsvp no later than Friday, June 24th, as seating is limited to 15 persons.

Where: Smith Learning Theater
