» Research Supervision Training: 23 April 2008 (12pm-2pm)

The aim of the seminar is to keep staff up to date with the QAA code of practice relating to PGR degree programmes and how we are complying with them. It is a great opportunity to meet, share and talk about issues that you may have or want resolved. The seminar will also outline the responsibilities of both supervisor and student, give advice on how to deal with complaints, appeals, procedures and any concerns supervisors may have with supervisory or examination issues etc. The seminar will be of relevance to experienced supervisors, relatively new supervisors and those who wish to supervise in the future, as it is now compulsory to attend training before embarking on supervision. Previous training will also be taken into account at Research Application Panels, when allocating students to supervisors. The seminar will be led by Professor Mike Wilson (Chair of RPSG) in the GBC between 12pm-2pm with lunch provided. If you would like to reserve a place please email researchoffice@glam.ac.uk
