Supervisor Development Programme ~ 2019/20
The university runs a development programme for supervisors who are new to research degree supervision, co-ordinated by Professor Ian Livingstone. 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 2019/20 the workshops will be delivered on:
Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September 2019 at the University of Northampton’s Waterside Campus.
You will need to attend on all three days of the programme.
There will also be a delivery of the programme in July 2020, probably on Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th.
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 the programme. 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 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.
