IDPs for PhDs

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

To develop as a successful researcher and professional, you must reach beyond the established milestones of your PhD program. You need to present at conferences, publish your research, build your teaching pedagogy, seek leadership and service opportunities, and perhaps explore entrepreneurship. Managing all of this is far from easy, so you need a plan. You need an IDP. An Individual Development Plan is a tool used within both academia and industry to establish priorities, set goals, and track progress. In this workshop, learn how to create an IPD to guide you in self-assessment, exploration, goal setting, implementation, recording milestones, and reflection. Optimize your PhD years by planning experiences that will help you build the skills you need to finish well and keep rising throughout your career.

Open to MIT graduate students. Registration required via Handshake.
