The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies’ (CAGS) Task Force on Excellence in Graduate Programs is excited to invite you to Save the Date for our ‘Excellence in Interdisciplinary Programs Webinar’ (IDP webinar), to be held in a virtual setting on 21 September 2021.

September 21st 2021.

The webinar will run for 2 hours as under:

  • 12:00 noon – 2:00 p.m. (EST)

Over the past year, the task force conducted a study on IDPs as part of the overall mandate to promote excellence in Canadian graduate programs. We are excited to share our initial findings with the graduate studies community and other stakeholders. Recommended best practices for IDPs gleaned from the study will be presented. There will also be a panel discussion with IDP Deans/Directors and Administrators from Canadian post-secondary institutions and opportunities for networking and sharing.

In the coming weeks we will release more information about the webinar on excellence in interdisciplinary programs.

Registration is FREE and will open in late August, when further details will be shared.
