Event details

A doctorate is a journey towards academic independence. Doctoral students start and finish at different points, gaining different skills along the way; doctoral supervisors place different emphases on different points of the journey and have different interpretations of what supervision means. This workshop does not take a rules-and-regulations approach to supervision or attempt to instruct supervisors in one particular way of managing the complex supervisory relationship. Participants will consider the doctoral journey and the challenges that students face along the way and explore what support they might offer at which points. The workshop will introduce a number of ideas, case studies and conceptual frameworks to help participants’ thinking and practice in this area.
