Event description


Presenters: Dr Shirley Cooper, LDC Development Team
Natasha Bradley, IPHS

The supervision process is a key part of the PhD, but what should you expect from this relationship and what should you do when it does not meet your expectations? This is a session for PhD researchers to reflect on the nature of supervision, the potential issues that might arise, and to explore potential solutions. By taking a discussion-based approach, we will aim to help you recognise any personal barriers and the range of approaches available to overcome these barriers.

Within this session we will cover:

  • The University's expectations of supervision and the formal steps for reporting issues with supervision
  • Practical ways for PhD students to develop more effective relationships with their supervisors
  • Approaches to best manage the difficulties that can arise in working relationships
  • Opportunity to discuss issues and share experiences with other students
  • Further opportunities for help and support that are available within the University

This webinar will help you develop skills in 'Personal qualities' and 'Working with others' as outlined in the RDF subdomains B1 and D1.

Registration: This workshop is open to all PhD Researchers at the University of Liverpool.
