The Middle-stage Doctoral Consortium
This consortium is geared toward HR doctoral students in the middle of their program and is aimed to help students navigate the collection of career issues that begin to emerge when students are about halfway through a doctoral program. Students are expected to begin the transition into independent scholars, start building professional networks, move beyond the structure of courses and exams, and develop skills as an instructor. The workshop topics are designed to help participants develop the knowledge and skills required to be successful at this middle-stage and continue their development into strong researchers and teachers. The workshop will also provide participants the opportunity to interact with other PhD students, network with both senior and junior faculty, and stimulate an exchange of ideas and suggestions among participants.
