One-stop hub for evidence-based practices in STEMM PhD professional development

What are the pd|hub Collections?

The pd|hub Collections are sets of curated, peer-reviewed educational models to advance practices in specific professional development competency areas for graduate students and postdocs in STEMM.

Learn more

A PD Hub Collection is a curated collection of annotated models (such as courses and workshops) that were vetted via peer review. PD Hub provides support for instructors' adaptation and implementation of these models at various Implementation Sites. Data is gathered, allowing the Collection to be updated and educational practices to evolve.

What's Next

Future of the pd|hub Collections

  • We are hosting 2 cohorts of Implementation Sites--one in 2023-2024 and the second in 2024-2025--to partner with us to adapt, implement, and test models from the pd|hub Collection on Foundations of Career Exploration for PhD Scientists.
  • We will be sharing strategies and lessons learned from pd|hub's evaluation across Implementation Sites
  • We will collect and disseminate evidence-based practices in future pd|hub Collections, focused on other professional development competencies
