PhD Progression Learning Communities

PhD Progression Slack Community

Because PhD Progression is an asynchronous learning platform, learners are earning badges on their own time, at their own pace. In order to engage with other BU PhDs who are working on similar badges and Pathways as you, we have created a Slack community for PhD Progression, with individual channels for each pathway. Please join the community to connect with other PhDs and ask questions to us directly.

Career Development Learning Community

Thursdays, 10-11 am 

June 1, June 8, June 15, June 22, and June 29

Join your fellow PhD students for a month-long Learning Community aimed to support your work in the PhD Progression Career Development Pathways. The Career Development Pathway will help you to work through the essential steps in developing your awareness about the resources available to you and the steps to take in order to set yourself up to find the right career for you. These sessions will be a combination of interactive workshops and reflective conversations that help you to grow your learning through the pathways. The objective of this community is to provide accountability, community building, and the opportunity to earn digital badges for your career development skills. Attendance at all sessions is required. Register
