Professional Development Workshops

GradSteps


Starting in the 2014-15 academic year, the Grad Studies workshops series will include the following changes:

  • Workshops have now been grouped into steps.These steps help grad students address the issues they may face at various stages of their program. Some groups, such as the Personal Management step, are umbrella steps as they are relevant at all stages of the degree. Certain workshops may also be found under more than one step.
  • The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a record of holistic development outside of the classroom. Students will be able to claim their workshop attendance on their CCR, based on the student attending at least six workshops from any step. For more information, please visit the CCR for Workshops page.

Looking for a specific workshop and not finding it? Please let us know! Send requests for new workshop topics to graduate.studies@umanitoba.ca.

Note that not all workshops listed below are offered every term.
