Research Supervisor Seminar Series: Making a Success of Remote Supervision

Target Audience: University staff involved in research supervision (either formally or informally)

Process: Webinar - Panel presentations and discussion

Course Description:

This session is for all supervisors of doctoral students. Remote supervision presents challenges of forging relationships, managing records, establishing expectations and giving feedback to our Doctoral candidates. But it offers us huge advantages in mediating dialogues, setting up systems for co-working, and engaging students with the wider research culture. This session will present positive strategies to:
  • Manage Teams (or another platform) to maximise its continuity, record keeping capabilities and access
  • Build up the early relationship and expectations with doctoral students which might formerly have been done face to face
  • Handle feedback on written work
  • Manage constructive, challenging discussions and keep records of these
  • Induct students into wider communities of research and writing- in the school, university and research environment
The session will also identify some areas where interactions need to be different from those usually conducted. I will discuss strategies to replace the “casual contact” we might miss with our students.

Speaker: Jane Medwell
