Dean of Graduate Studies Workshop Series
The Dean of Graduate Studies (DGS), Associate Professor Simon Moss, presents a regular workshop series on topics relevant to HDR Students, Early Career Researchers and Supervisors. As well as covering topics that are broadly relevant, the Dean will hold specific workshops for new students, external students and supervisors. These workshops are offered over zoom and in person, unless stated otherwise.
HDR Supervisor Workshops
These sessions are essential to supervisors who would like to improve their supervision practices--which should be every supervisor of course. During these sessions, research supervisors are granted opportunities to discuss with one another
- challenges they would like to solve--such as how to manage candidates who are not progressing
- impediments they would like to address, and
- ideas they would like to express about research supervision.
These sessions will be informal but facilitated, usually by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
