Thesis Whisperer: Working with your Supervisor
Wed. 13 September 2017, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm AEST
Working with your supervisor
It's likely that you have never had a teacher/student relationship quite like the one you will have with your supervisor. Even the most happy student/supervisor relationships will have occasional moments of misunderstanding and tension due to the nature of research itself.
If you have aspirations to be an academic yourself, now is the time to start thinking about what sort of supervisor you would like to be. Come along to learn about some of the common problems that develop during a research degree and some strategies for solving them. This workshop will help you understand why the PhD is 'taught' the way it is and how to position yourself to get the most out of the experience.
By the end of this workshop you will:
Have learned about the interesting history of supervision, from the 18th century to the present day.
Have an understanding of the common problems that occur between students and supervisors and what (if anything) you can do to prevent them happening.
