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?
Distinct from classroom teaching, your work as a graduate supervisor involves mentorship and the formation of the next generation of academics and professionals.
