Supervising Graduate Students: workshops for supervisors

Short, practical workshops (1.5 hours) are held throughout the year over lunchtimes. Combining short case studies with time for questions and discussion, these workshops are designed to enable participants to consider the supervisor's role, best practice in guiding students' progress and a range of approaches to supervising graduate students, essential administration and the range of support available within the collegiate University.

Postdocs: An Introduction to PhD Supervision

Though not official supervisors, many postdocs and other university staff are involved in the process of supervising PhD students. You face the challenging task of fostering creativity, delivering feedback, and managing a supervisor-student relationship. This workshop explores the principles of good supervision, the art of delivering critical feedback for best results, and the teacher/learner roles of the supervisor-supervisee relationship. It is aimed at those looking to develop their skills in effective and inspired pedagogy.
