Postdoc Academy Learning Sessions (PALS)

During offerings of the first online course, Succeeding as a Postdoc, learners can join an optional institutional- or discipline-focused Postdoc Academy Learning Session (PALS). These learning communities enhance online learning by connecting content directly to the postdocs’ local context and community, and promote deeper reflection of the material. PALS are small groups of postdocs who meet once per week in-person or virtually throughout the six-week course. The group is led by a facilitator (a postdoc or a faculty/staff member supporting postdoc), and will uphold the following standards:

  • Create an environment for learning through reflection and discussion 
  • Promote equitable participation of all members
  • Build trust and create a sense of community
  • Uphold the norms and standards of the Postdoc Academy community

PALS will be available again during our next offering of Succeeding as a Postdoc scheduled for winter 2022.  Please continue checking this website for the most up-to-date information, and e-mail postdocacademy@gmail.com with any questions.
