The LLED GPAs are excited to announce the last instalment of our 2017/2018 Apprenticeship Workshop Series: “Parenthood and the PhD!”. While the event is an LLED initiative, all Faculty of Education grad students are invited to attend.
The format of the workshop will be a facilitated roundtable discussion where current and potential parents chat about parenting during a PhD (or Master’s program!). Five individuals who are a) currently PhD students in LLED or b) who have graduated the doctoral program at LLED, will be taking a leadership role in the conversation.
The conversation will be organized into 3 primary section:
- Preparing for Parenthood
- The First Year
- Parenting while PhDing
The purpose of the workshop is to focus on both informative personal insights about parenting during grad school, as well experiences accessing the institutional resources/supports that are (or a not) in place at UBC. This is not a “information session”, but rather experience-based sharing.
The workshop is also being held in partnership with Graduate and Post-Doctoral Studies (G+PS). G+PS is currently doing work on this topic, and it is hoped that this workshop can help inform some of their initiatives.
