Professional Development Topics for IERs


Hi everyone!

Can you help me find some potential topics for professional development workshops that we are planning to organize for Internationally Educated Researchers (IERs)?

Here are some examples:

  • Research project management and research funding
  • Research ethics in the Canadian context
  • Accessing and utilizing open source data
  • Introduction to Canadian labor market data
  • Effective Knowledge Translation Strategies
  • Evaluation
  • Use of social media for professional networking

Thank you!

    Best regards
