When & Where
Workshops for Supervisors by The Graduate School
The Higher Degrees Committee at GCU advises the following:
New supervisors with no previous completions should attend the How to be an Effective Supervisor series of 4 half-day workshops prior to submission of the student’s RDC1 form. If this is not feasible, supervisors should attend the workshops within 6 months of submission of the RDC1 form. This training series must be completed before submission of the student’s RDC2 form.
Experienced supervisors (with 1 or more completions) should attend a minimum of 1 refresher training session every 2 years. Experienced supervisors can attend any refresher workshop session from the supervisor training courses on offer listed on this webpage.
The full supervisor workshop series is run twice each academic year - course dates are planned in the summer and posted to this page prior to the start of Trimester A.
