How to be an Effective Doctoral Supervisor Workshop 3: Supervising the Research Process

Date: Wednesday, 14 March 2018

Time: 09.30 - 12.30

Location: A526C, Govan Mbeki Building

Tutor: Dr Tracey Stead

Description:

PhDs and Professional Doctorates are projects, and should be planned as such – this can help to give structure and security to the student as well as an easy means for the supervisor and institution to ensure that progress is being made. 

A project management approach will help both supervisor and student to manage risks, and create a plan of action, schedule milestones and engage effectively with stakeholders.

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Be able to help and encourage your student to plan their project
  • Understand how your students may differ in their approach to project management
  • Have a plan for your approach to supervising the different phases of the research project

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.
