About Supervision Training

Building a professional relationship with your supervisor is a lifelong skill that benefits you both in graduate school and in your professional life. Teaching and Learning Services, in partnership with Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, provides a range of tools you can rely on as you navigate your supervisory relationship in an academic context.

The Graduate Supervision website hosts resources for supervisees and supervisors that can help you discuss expectations with your supervisor, keep the lines of communication open with your supervisor throughout your studies, and talk with your supervisor about your professional goals.

The workshops below provide opportunities to identify strategies for improving your supervisory relationship, learn about the resources McGill offers for supervisees, and enhance your skills in a hands-on way.

Are you new to supervision at McGill or in need of an orientation refresher? Getting Started with Supervision is a perfect place to start.

If you’re struggling to find a good routine with your supervisor, you are not alone. Sustaining Supervision can help you re-define expectations and stay motivated in your studies.

Perhaps you’re familiar with McGill’s resources but you want to learn more about supervisory styles, and how to communicate better with your supervisor? Bring your questions to Getting the Best Out of Your Supervisor and hear how our panel of current students plus an Associate Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies would approach the issue.
