Graduate supervision best practices in Canada: Editorial


Mohamed Berrada and Daniel Halton interviewed Canadian postsecondary academics who have won graduate supervision awards to collect best practices in graduate supervision. Academics from Athabasca University, Dalhousie University, McGill University, Memorial University, Queen’s University, Université de Moncton, Université de Sherbrooke, and Université Laval shared their experiences and advice for professors who are beginning their graduate supervision journey. Among this advice, the interviewees encourage supervisors to recognize the individuality of their students, facilitate feelings of student ownership over the research projects in question, lead from a place of empathy and inclusion, and to view supervision as an ongoing process rather than a series of isolated tasks.
