The Postgraduate and Doctoral School (EPD), in collaboration with the Institute of Education Sciences (ICE), organises Doctoral Supervision Workshops, which are taught by the URV's Group of Trainers for the Professionalisation of Doctoral Studies (GFPD).
Each academic year the following workshops are offered with the aim of improving the quality of doctoral studies and assisting thesis supervisors in their work:
- "Good practices in doctoral supervision" (16 hours). Workshop aimed at thesis supervisors.
- "Advanced workshop in doctoral supervision" (4 hours). Monographic courses on joint supervision and professional career development for thesis supervisors who have completed the workshop on Good Practices.
In parallel to this, the GFPD also gives courses aimed at doctoral students (in Catalan, Spanish and English):"Get the most of your PhD to become an independent researcher: tricks of the trade" (5 hours).
