Supervisor Development Programme – 2016/17
The university runs a development programme for supervisors who are new to research degree supervision, co-ordinated by Professor Ian Livingstone, Head of the Graduate School. It is a validated university postgraduate course and it is delivered as two 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. Even if you have previously supervised research students, there may be some elements of the programme that you would find useful.
In 2016/17 the workshops will be delivered on two occasions:
Tuesday 14th, Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th February 2017
at The University of Northampton;
Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July 2017
at Regent’s University London.
Staff from both The University of Northampton and Regent’s University London plus staff delivering our research degrees as international partners are welcome to join either delivery. You only need to join one three-day course, not both. No fees are paid by participants on this programme, but if you will be travelling away from your own university you will need to discuss travel and subsistence expenses with your line manager.
If you are intending to join this programme for either delivery and have not yet contacted Ian Livingstone, please do so now. (01604 893362; email: firstname.lastname@example.org). He will be happy to answer any questions you have about the programme.
