Professional Development Days

About Professional Development Days

Professional Development Days is a series of free professional development workshops for graduate students who wish to learn professional skills to help them excel in their chosen field. Post-doctoral fellows are welcome. The next workshops will be hosted from May 4-8, 2020. Location: TBD

These sessions may be used towards the University of Alberta Professional Development Requirement which includes an individualized career plan document called an Individual Development Plan (IDP) and the completion of eight hours of professional development activities inspired by your career plan.

The IDP outlines seven competencies. You will find IDP competency information in the workshop descriptions to help to you determine which workshop will expand your desired skill areas.  

To record these workshops towards your eight hours of PD activities, you will be able to sign in online or have an FGSR representative sign your record of PD activities. Please keep these records, no other record will be issued. All professional development activities must be approved by your department. 

Supported by “A Vision for Innovation in Alberta: Excellence and Transformative Talent” - a Government of Alberta grant.
