Toronto, September 8, 2014- Too busy at work in labs,
lecture halls, and libraries to plot their career paths, graduate students now
have a unique set of online training resources to help them make the leap into
the work world and to succeed in any career.
Recognizing the unique experiences of graduate students, a
group of Ontario universities has come together with the help of funding from
the Ontario government to develop mygradskills.ca, a set of free online
professional skills training tools that will help grad students find their
“Graduate students have a different experience at university
than undergrads,” says Bonnie M. Patterson, President and CEO of the Council of
Ontario Universities (COU).
“Being asked to scour literature, analyze data, write papers
and take classes is an intense experience. Grad students haven’t had the time
to consider what’s next, and so universities are offering them this
extraordinary free professional development program to take online, in their
own time and at their own pace.”
Mygradskills.ca, developed by the Ontario Consortium for
Graduate Professional Skills training, is available starting today to any
Ontario graduate student. Using their university email account, students can log
onto the site to view 18 short, self-paced training units on topics such as how
to write a resume, how to conduct a job search, the art of entrepreneurship,
teaching and learning, and academic and professional communications.
The online professional development will benefit those who
are interested in a career in academia, as well as those seeking to put their
credentials to use in business, government or non-profits.
The initiative highlights Ontario’s leading role in graduate
education, and the consortium – made up of seven leading research-intensive universities
– hopes one day to make the training resources available to graduate students
all over the world.
“MyGradSkills.ca is a fantastic resource, and yet another
way that Ontario universities are preparing graduate students, especially PhD
students, for careers after graduation,” says Allison Sekuler, Associate
Vice-President and Dean of Graduate Studies at McMaster University, who led the
initiative and is also past chair of COU’s Ontario Council on Graduate Studies.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this novel way to
provide professional skills training and to take on this leading role in
graduate education. By working together, Ontario universities were able to
provide a broad suite of training resources for students that none of us could
provide on our own. It’s a great example of how partnerships can help us do
more for less, and do it better. We’re looking forward to expanding the
resources even more, and bringing on more partners from across Canada and the
The seven universities that are part of the Ontario
Consortium for Graduate Professional Skills are the McMaster University,
Queen’s University, University of Guelph, University of Ottawa, University of
Toronto, University of Waterloo, and Western University.
