CONTENT DEVELOPMENT FOR IMAGINEPHD

Content Development

Project Overview

Content Development Submission Link

We want Imagine PhD to remain a relevant and helpful resource. So, we aim to add new content to the site each year. As a resource conceived, developed and maintained by the GCC, we look to GCC members to help us produce that content.

For 2020-21, we are hoping to add Alumni Videos and several new Job Simulations to the site, and we are always interested to hear other ideas for creating Original Content that you may have. As always, ImaginePhD is a free and confidential resource for all users, and videos created by ImaginePhD are available for you to access and share with your university community.

Alumni Videos

We are hoping the alumni videos will become resources for each job family and provide personal insight into the career development process. We are asking for GCC members to share the names of any alumni they think might be interested in contributing. Of course, you should reach out to them before sharing their information if that seems most appropriate.

Job Simulations

ImaginePhD has been working in collaboration with Thi Nguyen to create simulations that can be on both ImaginePhD and the InterSECT library, we think they are a great way to add depth to the "Explore" content area. A handful of job simulations are already created, and we would love your help to fill out the collective library. If you're interested, please sign up for a job family of interest. We are looking to add the following:

  • Communications, marketing (e.g., digital communication)
  • Development (e.g., supports the fundraising of an organization)
  • Diplomacy and Mediation (e.g., internationally-focused work, anti-discrimination officer, conflict management)
  • Faculty (e.g., online teaching, curriculum design)
  • Human Services (e.g., recruiting or HR specialist)
  • Training (e.g., implicit bias, instructional design, assessment for gov't/corporate/nonprofit)

New to the job sim concept? No worries! You can read a bit more online, and we will be in touch to tell you all the details! Feel free to ask us any questions in the meantime. Job sim developers will earn $500 and also receive co-copyright of their simulation product.

Original Content Creation

Proposals from GCC members to design and add new content to ImaginePhD are welcomed. These content projects will be managed and executed by the GCC member or team awarded the project with oversight and support provided by ImaginePhD leadership. Most projects fall within the range of $500-3,000. With approved justification, higher budget projects may be considered.
