Just recently, the co-op office has a mandatory workshop series for Master?s co-op students. Of the 48 graduate programs _ there are 3 programs(M Sustainability, M of History, M of Social Justice), one cohort, that take a weekly work placement preparation course.
Embedded-PD in academic programs are mandatory. This year we will be survey all 49 academic programs to identify the types and format of PD requirements _ some are a PD seminar embedded within the program, others encourage attendance to workshops outside of their program (cocurricular).
No workshops are not mandatory (except in some academic misconduct rulings).
Increasingly we are getting requests from students to have workshops be recognized for credit, and from professors to have workshops as part of their graduate seminars. Some professors and programs recommend particular workshops to students
No, not University-wide. Two units (Integrated Program Neuroscience and Physiology) of 93 have RCR as mandatory, non-credit, and transcriptable.
No _ The IDP is seen as an opportunity to speak with supervisor about skills. A University-wide project is currently underway for its implementation.
The professional development workshops are not mandatory. Some programs include some of the workshops into their own professional development programming and/or recommend certain workshops to their students.
The course EFD901/911 is mandatory for first-year doctoral students from the Faculty of engineering. A maximum of 6 to 8 credits from CUEFR is mandatory for each diploma, for postdoctoral students. Postdoctoral students choose the courses with their supervisor, as part of their training programme. Otherwise, courses from CUEFR are chosen on an individual basis.
All graduate students from 2016 onward are required to complete 8 hours of PD and an IDP (Individual Development Plan) and all graduate students from 2007 onward are required to complete 8 hours of Ethics and Integrity training. All incoming students are also recommended to go through a student-supervisor checklist.
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.).
A discussion of the benefits of and plans for PD is a component of our supervisor-graduate student check-list and annual report.
Professional development or participation in the THRIVE program at this time is not mandatory for us at this time. Students and supervisors are strongly encouraged to attend as both part of our checklist for both students and supervisors.
Professional seminar courses are offered in some disciplines but are outside of the THIRVE program mandate (see more information in the Departments section of this survey).
Les programmes de perfectionnement ne sont pas obligatoires pour l?obtention du diplôme.
Toutefois, il est attendu de la part du directeur de recherche qu?il encourage ses étudiants à suivre ces formations pour la construction de leur projet professionnel personnel.
Compétences informationelles aux cycles supérieurs : obligatoire.
Avant d’entreprendre la formation, les étudiants passent un test qui permet d’évaluer leurs compétences informationelles. Les étudiants dont les résultats atteignent le seuil de réussite fixé peuvent être exemptes de la formation
La réussite des 4 ateliers obligatoires est une condition de passage de l’examen de synthèse (ou examen préparatoire). Donc, il s’agit d’une condition pour la poursuite des études et l’obtention du diplôme.
PD programs are not mandatory for students to graduate (although some specific UBC graduate programs, including NSERC CREATE training programs, have mandatory PD as part of their requirements resulting in students attending GPS workshops as part of those requirements).
Yes, discussion of career and professional development planning is listed in the Expectations document for students and supervisors found at https://www.grad.ubc.ca/current-students/supervision-advising
The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) was founded in 1962 to promote graduate education and university research through meetings, publications and advocacy. The Association brings together 58 Canadian universities with graduate programs and the three federal research-granting agencies, as well as other institutions and organizations having an interest in graduate studies.
