Supervisor Development Programme
The university runs a development programme for supervisors who are new to research degree supervision. It is a validated university postgraduate course and it is delivered as two masters-level modules – Workshops and Observation. It is a requirement of our research degree regulations that everyone who is new to supervision takes the first module – the workshops. The second module is optional but if you complete both you are awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Research Degree Supervision which you can count as one completion when putting together supervisory teams.
The workshops for 2012/13 will run 9.30-4.00 on Thursday 29th November, Tuesday 4th December and Friday 7th December 2012. There will be a further session of seminars led by participants early in 2013 – date to be negotiated with participants. You will be expected to attend on all of these days. Hopefully you can schedule other commitments, particularly teaching, around these dates.
The programme is co-ordinated by Prof Ian Livingstone. If you would like to join this year’s development programme and haven’t previously contacted Ian, please contact him now.
