Supervision Workshop for Faculty

This workshop provides an overview of the SGS Graduate Supervision Guidelines intended to help faculty and administrators create a supervisory environment that sets a student up for success.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • explore their own supervisory style, and how they can apply and adapt the guidelines;
  • explore case studies and 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.
