Session for Supervisors. Dr Cristina Devecchi, School of Education. Between theory and practice: The pedagogical dimension of doctoral supervision.
This workshop aims to bridge the gap between the implicit theory of supervision and its practice. It will do so by providing a theoretical canvas onto which it would be possible to map personal practice and experiences as supervisors and teachers. In the first part of the session, an overview of major theories of learning would be provided. In the second part of the session, a more practical workshop will enable participants to make explicit the link between theories and their own practice.

Session for Research Students. (Grendon Lecture Theatre, Park Campus).
Dr Kate Mahoney, Communication & me. Talk to me: Understanding personality and the way we communicate.
A workshop looking at how participants communicate their thoughts, ideas and concepts to others using Myers Briggs (personality type). Participants will learn how our personality informs the way we communicate with others and how to overcome communication anxiety and mismatches. The workshop will cover the supervisory relationship and use this experience to inform employer/ employee relations in the future.

12:00 Plenary session: Reconvene in HLT3.
Discussion: Supervising and communication. Bring your ideas from the earlier session to discuss as a group. There will also be a chance to plan future workshops for students and their supervisors.
