Is this course right for me?
Target Audience: For supervisors of doctoral research students
You know what your research student should be doing, but it just does not seem to be happening. Despite your best efforts to set up good habits for your student, it does not work. Why is this, and what can you do to make completing a PHD easier for your students and for you?
Students attending the seven secrets workshop have consistently reported a marked improvement in their progress towards completing their PHD. Now they have asked us to please tell their supervisors the same things!
This online course gives you practical strategies to deal with common problems such as:
- supervisor/student relations
- dealing with writer's block
- attitude (or lack thereof!) in relation to the PHD - it's not a Nobel prize
- getting your student to seek help when they are stuck
- the student who never has enough time
- treating the PHD like a job
- keeping on going when the going gets tough
