PhD supervisors

Qualification Supervision excellence at the University of Groningen

PhD supervision is an important and complex aspect of the work of an experienced researcher and scholar. You are at the same time content expert, co-researcher, coach, and assessor. As a supervisor, you play a key factor in the success of your PhD candidate.

To support you in this important role, the HR Learning and Development team, together with the Groningen Graduate Schools, has created a flexible and hybrid training course that will allow you to expand your knowledge, skills, and expertise, and enable you to become a more efficient and effective supervisor.

Qualification “Supervision Excellence at the University of Groningen”: as easy as 1 - 2 - 3

In order to receive the qualification “PhD Supervision Excellence” you will need to complete the following requirements:R

1. Register by filling the intake form below
2. Complete the online course “Successful PhD Supervision: A Shared Journey” (you can follow this independently and at your own pace).
3. Take part in a minimum of 3 workshops of your choice, if possible, one in each of the three blocks (see below);

Once you complete all the requirements above, you will be prompted to fill in a short questionnaire, which will initiate the issuance of the certificate.

Each workshop is offered multiple times a year and takes place at a location in or near the Academie building in Groningen. During the workshops you will deepen the topics discussed in the online course, and apply them to your own practice. You will do so together with a small group of colleagues from all UG faculties, and with the facilitation of a trainer.

Note that you can register for workshops at any time, independently from the qualification. It is actually recommended that supervisors keep participating in workshops even after completing the qualification.

Please register first by filing the intake form, then sign up for the online course and register for a minimum of three workshops, one from each of the three blocks below.

For questions about the course, or if you are having trouble with the registration, please contact Anna Salzano (a.salzano rug.nl).
