Research Supervisor Blackboard Resources – now available

We are delighted to announce a new dedicated Blackboard space to help support the development of research supervisory practice at the University of Bristol. The space is designed to act as a central hub for internal and external resources related to Postgraduate Research (PGR) supervision. Resources are organised around a series of key themes including:

  • supervision development
  • PGR-supervisor agreement of principles
  • a mapping of the skills training, professional development and community building
  • recordings of the sessions and materials from the inaugural Research Supervision Symposium

If you attended the Research Supervision Symposium you have access to the ‘Research Supervisor Development’ space in Blackboard under “My Organisations”. If you don’t currently have access you can self-enrol.

Please contact if you have any feedback or would like to recommend any resources for the site.
