Target Audience: For supervisors of doctoral research students


You know what your research student should be doing, but it just doesn’t 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 1/2 day 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

CANCELLATION
We want our events to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our events are delivered by consultants and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel events based on low numbers). Demand is high for our events with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel an event we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours), and this can be done via the "go to my bookings" link on the right.
