Topic Details


Are you new to supervising student research? Is it your first time to supervise a thesis or dissertation? Do you want to learn more about effectively supervising your students’ research? Then this is the workshop for you! The first portion of the workshop (35-40 minutes) will include a panel of faculty from master’s and doctoral programs who will respond to prompts about working with students and supporting student progress. The second portion of the workshop will be break-out discussion sessions, in which faculty will discuss how to handle three different scenarios (15 minutes). Then, the groups will come back together for 15 minutes to share main points from their discussions and ask general questions. Faculty attendees will leave the workshop with student-supportive strategies and receive a packet of resources.

This workshop supports the University’s goal of promoting the success of all students.
