Presenters: Dr Shirley Cooper, LDC Development Team and PGR presenters

** available for bookings from Friday, 10 January 2020

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 who are looking to improve their working relationship with their supervisor. Using a discussion-based approach, we will explore the potential issues that can arise, help you to recognise your personal barriers in the relationship and discuss a range of approaches 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', 'Self-management' and 'Working with Others', as outlined in the RDF subdomains B1, B2 and D1.
