Target Audience: All staff with a role in PG Research Supervision
This is a ‘Day-to-Day Supervision Skills’ workshop in the Strathclyde Supervisor Development Programme.
Career development is an increasingly important aspect of the PhD journey. This workshop aims to support supervisors of doctoral students in promoting their student’s career development.
The workshop will provide supervisors with information to effectively support their student’s development and there will be an opportunity to discuss any questions participants have in this area.
Participants will also learn about Strathclyde’s unique approach to this through the PG Cert Researcher Professional Development and a supervisor’s role in this. By the end of this workshop participants will:
- Have considered the role of the supervisor in a doctoral student’s professional development
- Be aware of funding bodies expectations around doctoral student’s professional development
- Have heard about previous Strathclyde doctoral student’s employability needs
- Have explored common questions supervisors have around supporting their doctoral student’s development
- Understand Strathclyde’s approach to doctoral student’s development
- Understand the processes surrounding the PG Cert in Researcher Professional Development and the supervisor’s role in this
This is a ‘Day-to-Day Supervision Skills’ workshop in the Strathclyde Supervisor Development Programme. As with all workshops in the Strathclyde Supervisor Development Programme it is also open to any member of staff interested in the topic.
