15/11: Webinar on “Implementing and Assessing Transferable Skills Trainings”



On 15th of November 2018, from 2-3 pm (CET) the second webinar of the PRIDE Network (Association for Professionals in Doctoral Education) will take place.

This year’s webinar explores the implementation and assessment of transferable skills trainings. The webinar will deal with the very practical issues of setting up a transferable skills programme – from the strategical planning to concrete organizational questions, like how and where to find trainers or which tools can be used to evaluate workshops. Further, the evaluation of the impact of transferable skills trainings on the progress of doctoral candidates remains an issue that the experts will address in the webinar.

Two experts were invited:
Verity Elston leads the career counselling service for PhDs and postdocs at the University of Lausanne Graduate Campus.
Christian Dumpitak is Managing Director of the Interdisciplinary Graduate and Research Academy Düsseldorf.

The webinar will last about 1 hour. 20 minutes are reserved for questions. You can already start posting your questions in our discussion forum:
