Completing graduate studies at Polytechnique Montréal?

The Library, in collaboration with Polytechnique’s Graduate Student Association (AECSP), invites you to an Intensive Community Writing (ICW) session held especially for you. This session will allow you to optimize your redaction practices while working on your research project in a motivating atmosphere that allows you to bond with other graduate students. The workshop will begin with a brief presentation on the Pomodoro Technique and SMART Goals (this time in English). We will then carry on with 4 x 50 minutes writing sessions intersected by 10-minute breaks (structure developed by the non-profit organization Thèsez-vous). Two librarians will be there to conduct the workshop and assist you.
