The How to Succeed as a Graduate Supervisor workshop is designed for pre-tenure faculty members and others who are new to a supervisory role at the University of Toronto. In this interactive session, you will learn:

  • Key milestones and policies you need to know as a graduate supervisor
  • Best practices in selecting and recruiting students, and matching research interests
  • How to co-create student-centered academic plans and professional experiences
  • How to document student progress and tips on providing effective feedback
  • How U of T can support your development and success as a supervisor

This workshop will offer practical advice, grounded in discussion of realistic case studies of supervisory practice at the University of Toronto, and includes perspectives from peer faculty recognized for their outstanding graduate supervision.

Notes: This workshop is a repeat of the session previously titled “Building Success Across the Graduate Lifecycle.”

You will be asked to answer a few additional questions when you register.
