Qui est admissible aux sessions? (étudiants, postdoctoraux, anciens étudiants, etc.) Sessions are developed and delivered for a graduate student audience. In some cases postdoctoral fellows are also included (e.g., Mitacs workshops).
Les programmes de perfectionnement professionnels sont-ils obligatoires pour l?obtention du diplôme ou font-il partie de la liste de contrôle du superviseur? UCalgary does not have a mandatory PD requirement, though some graduate programs do offer PD courses that are a requirement (e.g., Engineering, Veterinary Medicine, etc.).

De quelle manière fait-on la promotion des sessions? The two primary ways for connecting with graduate student are the weekly newsletters of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (Gradpost) and the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA News). These are sent out weekly to all graduate students. Our office also connects with graduate students through Twitter, LinkedIn, and digital screens across campus. Many Departments also promote sessions to graduate students through Department emails. My GradSkills also has a group of volunteer graduate students (My GradSkills Ambassadors, http://www.ucalgary.ca/mygradskills/ambassadors) who volunteer to help promote PD to graduate students in their department (they also function to help provide feedback to evolve our programming). Note that the promotion of sessions is not limited to endorsed workshops and/or services.
Comment les participants s?inscrivent-ils? (grâce à un système centralisé ou à une entreprise partenaire) Given that sessions are not organized through a centralized system, the process of registering varies depending on the host. Currently, students can register for sessions by using one of the following methods: Direct email CareerLink (https://careerlink.ucalgary.ca/home.htm) Survey Monkey
Y a-t-il des coûts ou des tarifs supplémentaires pour les personnes inscrites? Sessions are typically free to registrants, with the exception of those hosted by Mitacs, where a $50 deposit is required and only charged if the registrant does not show up for the session.
