Research Supervisor Workshops 2020/21

Are you new to research student supervision?

Or an experienced supervisor wishing to learn more about recent changes to doctoral education?

I will be running a repeat set of Research Supervisor Workshops.
Each workshop has been designed to stand alone and the entire set of 4 workshops will cover most of the important aspects of research student supervision.

If you are interested in joining one or more of these “live” virtual workshops you need to:
• Log into Blackboard and go to Training Materials (Epigeum and similar) module
• Click on Virtual Classroom option in the left-hand menu.
• Click on the relevant workshop link you wish to join
Please check that you have access to this Blackboard site asap
Internal Staff: If you do not have access please email blackboard@nuigalway.ie so that CELT can arrange access for the duration of the workshops and a week after e.g. 27 January – 12 February 2021
St. Angela’s or Burren College of Art Staff: Please email graduatestudies@nuigalway.ie for temporary log in details to access this Blackboard site.
