DoctorAl Digest 19

An exciting article in University Affairs about Laurentian’s new MSCom (Master’s in Science Communication) program launching this fall.

When I became a principal investigator of a lab I began managing people for the first time. I’ve found the Ask a Manager website an amazing resource. Some of the stories are so wild that you’d think that they can’t be true! A great source of examples of how not to manage, and excellent advice from Alison on how to solve problems and effectively manage your staff.
