Introduction
The rise in mental health issues among PhD students is a global problem. A PhD trajectory is a period of intense work with many ups and downs. How this trajectory is experienced by PhD students is dependent on internal factors within the student and external factors related to the supervision team, the organizational infrastructure and culture.

  2. To engage PhD students in a conversation about stressors and energizers in their PhD work. 

Format and interactivity

Anticipated outcomes:

  1. PhD students understand factors associated with burnout and well-being while pursuing PhD trajectories.

Faculty development through an organisational lens

Presenters: Klodiana Kolomitro, Associate Vice-Principle (Teaching and Learning), Queens University, Canada; Joanne Hamilton, Director, Office of Educational and Faculty Development, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, Canada.

Date: Thursday 3 February 2022

Time: 14:00hrs-15:00hrs (UK time)

Introduction
Faculty development (FD) is a critical strategy that supports faculty members performing their varying roles in health professions education (HPE). FD should be programmatic and conducted systematically to provide longitudinal support for educators. However, the consistency and effectiveness of FD often depends on organizational factors. Therefore, while faculty developers need to employ various FD methods, to be successful they also need deeper understanding of the organizational factors affecting FD practice.

This webinar presents two prominent scholars who will explore FD using Bolman and Deal’s four frames of organizations, focusing on symbolic, political, structural and human resource factors that influenced FD practice in the Canadian setting. The findings highlight the role of the FD unit, the importance of FD visibility, the responsive expansion of FD practice, and the role leadership and policy can have on human resources for FD.
