Event Details

How to be an Effective Doctoral Supervisor Workshop 4: Supporting, Motivating and Developing Students

Date: Friday, 19th January 2017

Time: 13.30 - 16.30

Location: CEE8, Centre for Executive Education

Tutor: Dr Tracey Stead, Professor Bonnie Steves and additional experts to be confirmed

Description:

Supporting, motivating and developing students

Any research student or project will encounter challenges along the way.  As a supervisor, it is important to recognise when these challenges are being encountered and to have the tools and understanding to be able to help, motivate and support your student through the process.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Be able to describe the skills development needs of the research students over time
  • Know the support and opportunities available within GCU for supporting and developing research students
  • Have some strategies for motivating your student through challenges they may encounter

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.

Organiser

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.
