Training courses for PhDs: supervising & teaching

22 October 2021

CIT-Educational Support and Innovation in collaboration with the University of Groningen Graduate Schools offers several courses to prepare PhDs for teaching and supervising activities. As of today, you can sign up for our new course Start to Supervise!

New! Start to Supervise

Start to Supervise was set up to prepare PhD-students for their supervisory tasks as daily supervisor of research by bachelor or master students. The course introduces PhD students to the Thesis Supervision Cycle (TSC) in three three-hour sessions in which all parts of the TSC will be addressed. The aim is to prepare PhD students to act as (daily) supervisors for Bachelor & Master Theses.


Training days on 1 & 15 December 2021 (9.30-12.30) and intervision on 12 January 2022 (9.30-12.30)

Start to Teach

As a PhD student, you may be asked to teach (a section of) a course. ‘Start to Teach’ is designed to cover the foundational principles of university teaching through a series of workshops that will support you as you start on your teaching journey. This course assists you in planning and preparing your teaching activities, gives you the tools to engage and activate students, and shows you some best practices for giving feedback and assessing assignments and exams.


Next start date on 27 January 2022 (Block 3/Semester 2a). If there are enough participants, we will also offer a run in Block 4/Semester 2b.

Introduction to Teaching

Introduction to Teaching gives PhD students a first insight into the teaching profession. The aim of this training is to guide PhD students through the process of turning their own research topic into an educational session.
