For supervisors

Best Practice in Being a Second or Third Research Supervisor

  • Date: 14 May 2018
  • Time: 1.15pm - 3.30pm
  • Venue: The Graduate School Training Room
  • Presenter: Darren Van Laar

The aim of this workshop is to acquaint supervisors with the main issues surrounding being an effective Second or Third research Supervisor.  Although the First supervisor has most of the regulatory responsibility for the good progress of a Postgraduate research student, the Second and the Third supervisor can hold key roles such as: ‘Project Manager’, ‘Experienced supervisor’, ‘Research Methods Expert’ or ‘Apprentice Supervisor’.  The session will examine how the Second and the Third supervisor can best contribute to the supervision team and how they can manage issues if things go wrong.
