@Innovation_CBoC data presented to frame the discussion ⬇️
PhD graduates are represented across diverse fields in and beyond academe
1. Are we training students and trainees effectively?
2. How can we improve this?
3. Who do we need to educate?
🔵 Seeking skills outside PhD should not be misconstrued as a lack of commitment to research
🔵 PhDs need plans A, B, C ➡️ many won't get into an academic plan A, so we can't train them as one-spoked wheels
🔵 Lots of opportunities exist already for students at their uni, often they don't know about them
🔵 Value the time that students take for skills gaining initiatives, while also not losing sight that they need to finish their degree
