Effective Postgraduate Supervision
Is this workshop for me?
Are you involved in PhD Supervision? Just as there is no one-size fits all for the PhD, or PhD student, there is no one-size fits all model for how to supervise or for how you want to be as a supervisor.
Set within the context of the institutional expectations and support structures for PhD Supervision, this one-day interactive workshop aims to explore the challenges facing PhD supervision and how to be at your best as a supervisor. The event is for both new and experienced PhD supervisors.
- Being honest: how what’s in it for you informs your supervision.
- Horses for courses: how can you be as a supervisor? What would work for you and what might work for different kinds of students?
- Tips and tricks: some shared experiences of what works and what doesn’t work, for who and when.
- In the flow: How to bring the best out of your students (and yourself).
- How to set aspirations and goals as a supervisor.
The workshop is run by Dr. Will Medd, professional coach and co-author of “Your PhD Coach” (Mcgraw Hill/Open University Press) (www.willmedd.com)
