Professor Zlatko Skrbis, Vice Provost (Graduate Education) Monash University, invites you and your colleagues to this year’s Supervisor Symposium on 18 November:
This is a date which will cap off the research supervisor development programme we have run in 2016. The day’s sessions will be driven by two themes: supervision excellence and industry engagement. The morning’s keynote will be delivered by Ian Chubb AC; after lunch, Ben Eggleton will deliver the address on the importance of growing relationships with partners outside of universities.
Panels will be conducted immediately after each of the keynotes and we have invited award-winning supervisors from other universities to join with our own respected and decorated academics to lead participant discussions during those sessions.
Attendance of the day’s sessions will be recognised towards Level 2 supervisor accreditation, but I would like to encourage supervisors of all levels of experience to participate in the day’s events as I know that they will find them of genuine value. A lunch is being organised to ensure we all have a chance to debrief big ideas and catch up with colleagues from the other faculties.
The Symposium’s website is up and running and contains guest bios, a programme and a registration page for the day. The address for the site is: https://www.monash.edu/supervisor-symposium
