Upcoming Events

Today’s academics, researchers, and scientists face increasing competition not only in their fields of study, but in the areas of professional communication. In a tight market, it is the polished and the well-presented candidate who has an edge.

UAB’s Professional Development Program offers ongoing support for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting scholars who want to gain that edge:

Courses and workshops that train participants to make effective presentations, write productive papers, grants, and dissertations, and prepare for faculty teaching responsibilities.

Those who wish to polish their professional speech can participate in courses and workshops on presentations skills, while writers can hone their research and publishing skills. Any who plan to seek faculty positions can get pedagogical background and career leadership in GRD 705 Teaching at the College Level, or develop the Teaching Philosophy most academic positions require in GRD 716 Preparing a Teaching Portfolio.

The Mission of the professional Development Program is to provide those skills that transcend disciplinary boundaries. For more information and full schedule, visit: www.uab.edu/pdp.
