Workshop Description:

An Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a customized, living roadmap for your professional training. It can help you set goals and review and update them regularly, enabling you to make most of your graduate or postdoctoral experience at Northwestern University. This workshop will help you create an outline of your IDP that will facilitate professional development conversations with your mentor.

Workshop Facilitator:

Professor Goldberg is the Director of the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, Assistant Provost for Learning and Teaching and Professor of Physics and Astronomy. He has more than two decades of experience in designing and implementing active learning workshops for graduate students and postdocs, and is co-author of two MOOCs developing learning and teaching skills for future faculty. Having recently arrived from Boston, he is excited to start working with the graduate student and postdoc communities at Northwestern.
