The Right Start: Building a Healthy Student-Supervisor Relationship

Fri, 2013-10-25 10:00 - 12:00

As a professor, supervising graduate students is in most cases very rewarding. However, the supervisory experience can present professors with many challenges including conflict and at times, ineffective resolution of such conflict. If you would like to learn new strategies to improve communication with supervisees, you might be interested in training in conflict resolution, and in learning how to communicate expectations and responsibilities.

Writing Effective Reference Letters for Student Fellowships

Wed, 2013-08-28 10:00 - 12:00
McLennan Library Building : Room: MS-74, 3459 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C9

Professors are often asked by students to write reference letters for funding opportunities. This interactive session is designed to help you answer questions such as:

  • Are you obliged to write a reference letter if asked by a student and how might you respond if you are not supportive?
  • How much lead time should you expect in order to write a reference letter?
  • What information should be provided by the student?

What are the key elements of a “good” reference letter and what pitfalls should be avoided?
