This workshop is intended for faculty who are supervising graduate students and who are interested in enhancing their supervisory practices. The School of Graduate Studies has published the revised Graduate Supervision: Guidelines for Faculty, following the publication of equivalent guidelines for students. This workshop provides an overview of the guidelines and case studies 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. 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.
