Event description

Description

Research shows that graduate students view feedback from their supervisors and committee members as critical to their successes with theses and dissertations—and not just with the content they are writing about, but with the actual writing and processes of writing as well. Providing feedback on multiple ongoing thesis and dissertation projects, however, can be a challenging, time-consuming, and even frustrating process for faculty.

In this session, writing specialist Sarah Gibbons and educational developer Tommy Mayberry will draw on research from writing studies and the scholarship of teaching and learning to discuss effective approaches to mentoring and supporting your graduate students via feedback on their thesis and dissertation projects. They will offer strategies for providing effective feedback under time constraints and will identify approaches and tools that your graduate students can use (and that you can use with your graduate students) to address and engage with your feedback as they write, revise, and polish their theses and dissertations.

This session will also be an opportunity for both new faculty and seasoned supervisors and committee members to share ideas, successes, and failures with one another as we collectively work toward embodying and sustaining effective thesis and dissertation pedagogy processes at U of G.

This is a second talk in a series on graduate supervision and faculty/student relationships.

This event is free for faculty members at the University of Guelph.
