Now attending the breakout panel on training the next generation ➑️ how to best equip students and trainees to succeed outside academia?

@Innovation_CBoC data presented to frame the discussion ⬇️

PhD graduates are represented across diverse fields in and beyond academe
Questions

1. Are we training students and trainees effectively?

2. How can we improve this?

3. Who do we need to educate?
Top points:
πŸ”΅ Seeking skills outside PhD should not be misconstrued as a lack of commitment to research
πŸ”΅ PhDs need plans A, B, C ➑️ many won't get into an academic plan A, so we can't train them as one-spoked wheels

James Compton, prev prez @CAUT_ACPPU shows that there was a massive increase in student population, but this has slowed over the last 3 years. It would have slowed more, were it not for international students. Yet, #PSE funding from fed has been flat, has decreased at prov level
... Tuition has also increased over time. Faculty wages are not the culprit though, the % #PSE expenditures on wages has diminished over time. There is also more reliance on contract staff ➑️ and academic staff are not being renewed
