Student-Centered Applied Learning of Extra-Disciplinary Skills (SCALES)

SCALES, brought to you by the Graduate College and Graduate Student Association, is a series of student-run workshops, facilitated by Drexel graduate and professional students, designed to enrich and reinforce holistic education in extra-disciplinary skills, encourage interdisciplinary learning and discovery, and to enhance teaching, presentation, facilitation, and other professionally-applicable skills.

Selected student instructors facilitate a 60-90 minute workshop or training centered around a professional or academic skill, resource, or tool, such as from their own professional or academic experience or field of study, in a highly interactive and engaging workshop format.
