Online Workshop: Creating and Owning Your Individual Development Plan
Nov 1 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

In this workshop, you will create a robust IDP draft and an action plan to facilitate conversations with your advisor or supervisor about career goals, current and desired skills, and professional development opportunities. We will discuss how to define achievable goals, identify resources, and develop strategies for implementing and sustaining your plans. You’ll start by considering your current skills and career aspirations. Then, along with your peers, you will consider key features of effective plans. You will begin to create a personalized plan that takes into account career interests and addresses the resources needed for the development of knowledge and skills. In addition, you will begin writing goals that are achievable and meaningful. IDPs are most effective when shared. Workshop participants will develop a plan for talking with their mentor.
