Event Details

How to be an Effective Doctoral Supervisor Workshop 2: Establishing roles and working practices

Date: Wednesday, 22nd November 2017

Time: 13.30 - 16.30

 Location: M225, George Moore Building

Tutor: Dr Tracey Stead

Description:

Many of the challenges faced by both staff and supervisors and research students can be avoided by:

  • Carefully setting expectations at the start of the relationship
  • Clearly defining the roles of student and supervisory team
  • Understanding each other's working styles and culture

By the end of the workshop you will have:

  • Determined the most important expectations and issues to clarify with the student
  • Understood how working practices and preferences may differ between students and supervisors over time
  • A plan for effective meetings and feedback

All of the 'How to be an Effective Doctoral Supervisor' workshops are highly discursive and  interactive and allow the opportunity to share experiences, explore the assistance available to first-time supervisors and take away practical tools and suggestions.

Please note:

  • Starting from the basis of assuming that supervisors are doing a good job already, this course does not focus on the basics of supervision; rather it concentrates on activities which will increase the effectiveness of the supervision process for postgraduate researchers.
  • New supervisors must attend all of these workshops at some point this academic year, if they haven’t already completed them, in order to be able to register as a supervisor for a PhD. New supervisors are defined as those who have not yet supervised a PhD to completion.

Workshops for Supervisors by The Graduate School

The Higher Degrees Committee at GCU advises the following:


New supervisors with no previous completions should attend the How to be an Effective Supervisor series of 4 half-day workshops prior to submission of the student’s RDC1 form. If this is not feasible, supervisors should attend the workshops within 6 months of submission of the RDC1 form. This training series must be completed before submission of the student’s RDC2 form.


Experienced supervisors (with 1 or more completions) should attend a minimum of 1 refresher training session every 2 years. Experienced supervisors can attend any refresher workshop session from the supervisor training courses on offer listed on this webpage.

 

The full supervisor workshop series is run twice each academic year - course dates are planned in the summer and posted to this page prior to the start of Trimester A.
