Our graduate student professional development events, workshops and conferences will help you cultivate a teaching portfolio, learn more about research ethics, and prepare for a career outside academia.
Featured Events and Workshops
The Individual Development Plan (IDP) is part of the Professional Development Requirement now mandatory for all students admitted September 2016 and onwards. We are hosting several IDP information sessions and workshops to help you get started on your IDP and take some time to prepare for where you want to be at the end of your graduate program. Students who complete an IDP finish their programs faster and have an easier transition into the workplace.
Ongoing:Shut up and Write!
Shut up and Write! turns writing from a solitary, to a social experience.
The concept is simple: meet up with others and write. The idea is to make the act of writing fun and relaxing: No critiquing, exercises, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty!
Join us for a coffee, tea, cookies, and of course lots of writing every two weeks!
