Research Supervisor Seminar Series: Top Tips for Supervising Research Students

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

Process: Webinar - Panel presentations and discussion

Course Description:

As the academic year starts and we build new relationships with research students, it is timely to hear some top tips from experienced colleagues. They will share general advice and personal insights from supervising doctoral students. This session is aimed at newer doctoral supervisors, but more experienced colleagues who wish to refresh or reflect upon their own practice are equally welcome. It is aimed at colleagues from any school as our speakers comes from two different fields; the Social Sciences, where relationships with doctoral students are generally characterised by individual student projects and regular but infrequent formal meetings, and STEM, where group projects and frequent but often brief or informal contact in the lab is the norm.

Speakers: Anna Grabowska and Laurie Cohen
