This project will implement an individualized framework supporting professional skills development for graduate students across the university. Rather than asking students to adapt needs and interests to a standardized curriculum, this project will introduce an individualized development plan (IDP) providing students with tools and resources that will allow them (in consultation with others) to structure how they acquire the skills necessary for success after graduation in a manner that is both responsive to their interests and integrated with their academic program. Along with providing a way of supporting the professional skills development of students, the IDP framework will also pilot a format for recognizing the kinds of activities that students undertake to make such activities visible to others.
