These researcher development opportunities cover everything you need to know to be a successful research supervisor at VU. A new Supervisor Development Program is coming soon; details will be added to this page as they are confirmed.
Researcher development sessions
Within this development category VU runs sessions and programs throughout the year focusing on the following areas:
- Foundations of Supervision – knowledge and practice to participate effectively as a member of supervisory teams.
- Step Up to Principal – knowledge and practice to lead and manage as a principal supervisor.
- Leadership in Supervision – knowledge and practice to be an effective experienced supervisor and supervision leader.
Research Supervision Toolkit
The Research Supervision Toolkit was developed through an Office for Learning and Teaching project (including VU’s Professor Ron Adams and Emeritus Professor Helen Borland).
This resource has been developed to give confidence to new supervisors in emerging research areas by providing ideas for dealing with common issues. It provides a forum for discussing thoughts, experiences and reflections.
