Details The success of doctoral research hinges not only on the ability and motivation of doctoral candidates. Good supervision by the main supervisor(s) can be considered equally important with respect to the success or failure of a dissertation.
However: What constitutes good supervision? Which criteria define a successful performance of doctoral supervisors? How is a trustful and reliable relationship between supervisors and doctoral candidates formed and maintained? Are there crucial steps that supervisors need to pay attention to while supervising a doctoral candidate? Which criteria can be applied when supervisors are faced with a decision to take on or refuse a(nother) doctoral candidate? These are only a few of the questions that researchers need to tackle when leading early career researchers as doctoral supervisors.
This workshop is designed to open up a space for the critical reflection of the supervisory role. We will introduce and develop a set of tools that might prove helpful for supervisors to master the complexity and the challenges involved in their performance. There will be room for peer-to-peer coaching and interaction to enable participants to talk about their supervision experience, about examples of good supervision practice, as well as about apprehensions and difficulties that might have emerged in their personal track record as supervisors. The workshop aims at providing researchers with the tools, skills and the mindset to tackle challenges of good supervision more efficiently and professionally.

- Developments in PhD Supervision
