Doctoral education is in the throes of rapid change, and the supervision of doctoral candidates is becoming ever more complex and challenging. For this reason, Epigeum has decided to build upon the success of the original Supervising Doctoral Studies by producing a new e-learning programme with an updated set of modules. I am excited to be involved in this project that aims to support supervisors to effectively undertake their roles, to enhance the quality of the candidate learning experience, and to improve the chances of successful and timely completion.
