About this Event

The Supervisor Development Program (SDP) is a semester-long series of interactive, online workshops that aim to provide graduate research supervisors at La Trobe with knowledge and resources that will enhance their supervision practice. The SDP responds to the La Trobe Strategic Plan and the Graduate Researcher Experience and Wellbeing Plan by helping supervisors to build shared understandings of supervision practice that will enhance the research training experience and promote timely and effective completions.

The SDP workshops are organised in a sequence of four staged topics. It is recommended that participants aim to access the workshops in sequence over the course of a single semester. Participants are welcome to repeat any of the workshops at any time to reinforce specific aspects of their supervision practice.

About this session:

Research can be unpredictable, and it is not always clear at the beginning of a 3-4 year project what will happen by the end. Even very well-planned projects can face challenges when things don’t work. This fourth SDP workshop aims to provide supervisors with some strategies for problem solving and managing change. It describes the various parts of the research environment that can contribute to problem solving, and explores how to make the most effective use out of processes, policies and other resources that can assist in change management.
