The second iteration of SeedWISE began on Monday 20th September and ran every Monday until the 8th November (with a one-week break at the end of October).

The final session was run in-person on Monday 8th November and the rest of the course ran virtually. We will follow a similar format for the third round of SeedWISE, which is likely to start after Easter 2022.

SeedWISE is a blended learning programme. That means we will meet face to face (virtually in this instance) to work together and then in between sessions we have further resources for you to explore the topics.

Our fun, interactive face to face sessions will involve a mixture of speakers who have gone onto a variety of careers, group work and action learning sets. The latter is an amazing way to develop yourself and help clarify your thinking on the subject. You will be working in small groups of 4 or 5. Each person has 15 minutes ‘air time’ to present their thoughts on the topic and ask the group for help. It is a powerful way to learn as you get help but also learn from the advice to other people. Our initial and final meetings will be 3 hours long (with breaks) and the sessions in between will be 90 minutes. All events will be held over Zoom, apart from the final session, which we hope to hold in-person.

Our further resources are there for you to look at between sessions on Canvas. There are video lessons, exercises and further information for those who want to delve deeper. We anticipate this will take you no more than an hour a week. There are chats to interact with the other women on the course and a way to chart your progress through the material.

You will be part of a cohort of likeminded women DPhil students and we really do hope to build a sense of community with the group. Our session will be fun, lively and interactive and we are hoping to get everyone together towards the end of the programme if guidelines allow.
