About Supervising Doctoral Studies 2.0
Developed in collaboration with expert advisors, authors, reviewers and partner institutions, the second edition of Supervising Doctoral Studies offers comprehensive, flexible and engaging training in the core principles and practices of doctoral supervision to equip new and more experienced supervisors to support doctoral candidates’ development into independent researchers.
Taking a streamlined, modular approach, this new edition (updated January 2023) recognises research supervision as a distinct academic practice, requiring supervisors to develop a specific set of skills, knowledge and understanding to guide a diverse range of candidates to successful and timely completion. The programme provides guidance in the most effective and up-to-date supervisory techniques, using video interviews, case studies, and thought-provoking scenarios and activities to highlight best practice and to encourage supervisors to reflect on their own approach.
Covering supervisors’ core responsibilities in supporting candidates’ research, their development as researchers, and establishing effective supervisory relationships, this edition also addresses new and emerging developments in the field ensuring that supervisors maintain a current knowledge of the continually-changing context in which they work, and are able to navigate both academic and non-academic responsibilities with confidence.
