Graduate supervision and teaching are the backbones of graduate student success. Every year, Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies receives numerous nominations for the Carrie M. Derick Award for Graduate Supervision and Teaching and the David Thomson Award for Graduate Supervision and Teaching. These awards acknowledge outstanding contributions to promoting graduate student excellence through supervision and teaching by a faculty member at McGill. The award selection committees are given the difficult task of choose only one awardee for each award; however, all of the nominees demonstrate inspiring approaches to graduate supervision.
The goal of Supervision Snapshots is to recognize the important contributions the nominees and winners of these awards make to graduate studies at McGill* and to share best practices with the wider McGill community.
* Please note that the Supervision Snapshots date back only to 2016. In the case where nominees were entered in more than one year, they appear on the website only in the most recent year.
