New Supervision Workshop for Faculty


Facilitated by Carol Rolheiser (Director, CTSI), Luc De Nil (Vice-Dean, Students, School of Graduate Studies), and
Megan Burnett (Associate Director, CTSI), this workshop uses the recently updated Graduate Supervision Guidelines - Faculty edition (2017) as a starting point for an engaged discussion of best practices in supervision. Participants will also be able to discuss best practices with other participants and a panel of faculty members who are recognized for their excellence in graduate supervision. The focus of the workshop will be on creating a positive supervisory environment from the start of the supervisory relationship in order to support the student towards academic success and prevent potentially problematic situations from developing.
