Innovation in PhD Training – IGERT evaluation report

Evaluation of an IGERT at the University of Washington which aims to train its students to become disciplinary experts who are also highly skilled in collaborative team work and interdisciplinary problem solving.  The evaluation was performed at the end of the third year of a five-year grant in order to assess which activities were working in pursuit of their goals, identify barriers to achieving project goals, extract larger lessons learned for doctoral education and interdisciplinary programs, and provide ideas and recommendations for next steps.
