Graduate training and development opportunities

We are committed to providing the all necessary learning and development opportunities to our students.

  • The School organizes many information sessions and workshops on several topics: among them, library research, research and funding possibilities, methodologies and professionalization.

  • The Faculty of Graduate Studies has created My Gradskills, which provides professional and academic development opportunities to give students the skills they need to succeed before and after graduation.

  • The Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning supports the teaching development of graduate students, the integration of technology to enhance teaching and learning, and scholarly approaches to teaching, course design and curriculum development. The institute also offers a Graduate Teaching Development Badge.

  • Students should consider taking courses thorough the Language Research Centre, e.g. LANG 599/605, Second Language Learning and Pedagogy.

  • The Werklund School of Education also offers useful courses (EDER 613: Change and Innovation in Education; EDER 667: Second Language Reading and Writing; EDER 669: Aspects of Second Language and Culture; EDER 696: Special Topics in Education), as well training sessions.

  • The Student Success Centre provides graduate writing workshops and a graduate coaching program.

  • The English for Academic Purposes program has developed specialized seminars for graduate students and post doctoral students.

  • Free professionalization workshops are also offered through MITACS.
