Federal Public Service Career Week saw many grad students attending. We hope our efforts have paid off in terms of networking opportunities and as an alternative career option for some of you.

Academic conferences are the principal social arena for discussing your work. In fact, giving a conference paper is one of the few opportunities you will get, in person, to transmit your research to, and receive feedback from, others in your field. So it’s a good idea to make your conference papers count.
Following on the success of last November’s Learning to Teach Day, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS), and Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) will be offering another full day of sessions for graduate students who want to explore and develop their teaching skills on Sunday, March 15, 2009.
As we go to press, the program details are not finalized, but will be shortly and will be publicized on the TLS website (www.mcgill.ca/tls). This year the sessions are organized around two themes: Assessment & Feedback, and Developing Leadership Skills in Interactive Teaching Roles. As well, content will be adapted, where appropriate, to different disciplinary contexts. And, as in the past, there will be opportunities for networking with graduate students from across the University.
