Online PD options

Self-directed online learning

Sometimes a class or prior commitment means you can't attend a live online workshop or webinar, but there are options available for you to learn new skills at your own pace, when it's convenient for you.

Our partnership with Mitacs grants you access to their online courses that allow you to learn new skills at your own pace, where and when it's convenient for you. Graduate students and postdocs can sign up for a Mitacs EDGE account if you don't already have one and register for any of the courses below.
