This course has been developed through the generous funding of the Dutch government, as administered by Nuffic, and its roll-out has been extended from further funding from the Department of Higher Education and Training.

The project has also benefited from the input of a number of additional academic readers, librarians, graphic designers and online experts.

The workshop was insightful in a way that blew my mind. I particularly found the session on ethics very informative and useful, I will make use of the informative learnt not only in my supervision practice but in my classroom for the undergrad as well. I also enjoyed the section on coaching and mentoring, learning that there a difference between the two and that there is needs to be a progression from mentoring to coaching when one is supervising. I also liked the activities as well. I felt included, especially because I am a quiet person who finds it difficult to express myself when others talk a lot. Not that I do not have anything to say but when one is working in groups, there are people who kind of ‘dominate’ the discussions making it difficult for other people like me to say something.”

“I loved the facilitation. Both facilitators were well prepared and informed. I loved the way they mixed them and the presentation/discussion. They allowed free expression and critique.
