Covering some of the essential skills and competences required for successful supervision of doctoral students, this three-day workshop will allow participants to join a regional network while gaining intercultural perspectives in an interdisciplinary context. Some of the main issues covered during this workshop will include good practices in research supervision, learning outcomes for doctoral study, and the role of the supervisor.
The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Anne Lee, an Independent Academic Development Advisor who has worked on doctoral supervision with SLU for the past five years. She also works with universities across the UK, Scandinavia, Eire and mainland Europe. She is the author of ‘Successful Research Supervision’ published by Routledge in 2012.
