Breve descrizione

The workshop will introduce the  transferable skills theme as outlined in international policies, inviting the students to connect concepts and categories to their experiences.

We will enlighten the most common assumptions underlying the discourse on competence and their practical effects inviting the students to reflect about them in a critical way. To do that, we will provide forms based on different ways of profiling competences, in order to experiment those assumptions in a practical way.

We will share with students experiences of existing practices (national and international) aiming at supporting their professional transitions. We will share, as well, narratives of PhDs that already experienced a professional transition outside the academy collected through an ongoing research.

The final part of the workshop will be dedicated to develop a CV that could be addressed to external interlocutors who are often not aware of the value of a doctoral experience.

Objectives:

- increase awareness about future professional scenarios outside the academy;

- reflect about the transferable skills issue: one of the main strategy outlined by international policies to deal with professional transitions;

- share with students experiences of professional transitions outside the academy based on an ongoing research; 

- reflect about ways of composing a professional profile/CV addressed to interlocutors that often are not aware of the value of a doctoral experience;

- share with students existing national and international projects aiming at supporting them in professional transitions.

Target audience: Suggested year of attendance: second and third years
