From the 4th September 2023 the DoctoralSkills and DoctoralSkills:Extra Moodle sites will be migrated to a new platform called MyDoctoralDevelopment.

This change has been brought in to make it easier for you to book onto workshops and events, find out about development opportunities, as well as access our library of online resources to support your learning and development. There are also a number of administrative benefits for us making this switch which will improve your overall experience of booking onto our activities.

One important change as a result of this switch is that you will now be responsible for recording all of your learning and development activities. Previously, some training sessions you attended automatically appeared on your SAMIS record, whereas others you had to manually add yourselves. From 4th September 2023, we will no longer be able to add these to your records automatically and you will be responsible for recording any training you have attended.

Please read our guide about recording your training on SAMIS.

It is important to keep your training record up-to-date as this will be reviewed at key academic milestones such as confirmation. We recommend that you complete your record regularly throughout the year.

We will notify you when the site is live and share the URL with you. We will also re-direct users from the existing DoctoralSkills Moodle sites. Whilst we hope that any disruption is minimised if you do experience any difficulties with the new platform please get in touch.
