Strengthening research capacity

Building sustainability into postgraduate supervision in Africa

24 November 2011

The training the trainer workshop was held in Dakar, Senegal to consolidate the learning gained from a series of training workshops run by MCDC, and attended by 67 postgraduate supervisors based in Africa.

The four-day workshop was facilitated by Prof Kapp (a consultant in staff development from South Africa) and brought together 20 participants from each of MCDC’s partner institutions.

One of the outcomes from the workshop was the development (by members from each institution) of a training course specific to institutional need to take back for implementation. A follow-up evaluation will be undertaken to assess how far this training is translated into practice, and how it provides continuing support for postgraduate supervisors within MCDC partner institutions.
