6th Annual NIH BEST Meeting Summary
The BEST consortium, in recognition of the remarkable national interest in reform of doctoral training, was excited to open its annual meeting to everyone interested in innovations in the structures of doctoral training.
During the meeting, there were abstract presentations by a number of institutions and two great panel discussions. Below, you will find links to many of the abstract and slides of many of those that presented.
Blue-Sky Visioning, an interactive session (facilitated by Beka Layton from UNC) created ten “Mastermind Groups.” Each group created a “Massively Audacious Goal (MAG)” around the subject of improving graduate education and professional development. The MAG was required to be written in the present tense to help get people excited. The Mastermind groups formed during the meeting will continue and anyone can join them. If you would like more details about how to join one or more of the groups you can email Beka (email@example.com) or me for more details.
