Personal Development Planning (myPDP-PG)

Personal development planning (PDP) is a structured process to help you reflect upon your own learning, performance and achievements. myPDP-PG has been designed to support the University of Dundee's research postgraduates in the planning of personal, educational and career development.

Using myPDP-PG will help you to:

review, plan and take more responsibility for your own development

articulate your personal goals and evaluate progress towards achieving these goals

become a more effective, independent, confident and self-directed learner

improve your effectiveness as a career planner and your employability rating; and

begin the process of Continuing Professional Development in your chosen career area

We aim to develop links between personal development plans and the thesis monitoring process. You can choose to share parts of your personal development plan with you monitoring committee and/or supervisor. In addition, a student questionnaire for TMC meetings (very similar to the questionnaire available on the MDN Research Degrees web site, and used routinely by the Medical School Monitoring Committee system) is available which can be completed and stored within your myPDP-PG area. Whilst we would strongly encourage you to develop a personal development plan, you are at liberty to use either questionnaire for the purpose of your TMC meetings. For further information see: myPDP-PG on My Dundee web site.

N.B. Induction sessions on personal development planning will take place early next year. Further information will follow in due course.
