Professionals in supervision


The aim of this workshop is to create room to reflect on your role as a supervisor, to exchange experiences with other supervisors and to provide you with tools needed to supervise PhD candidates at a professional level. The course is interactive and alternates between presentations, working with tools and methods, and exchanging experiences related to supervision. 

Professionals in supervision (tentative program)



After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • reflect on your own supervision style in a broader perspective,
  • identify challenging phases of the PhD project and act on upcoming crises,
  • adapt communicative tools for active listening and giving feedback,
  • adapt the supervision process, so the PhD candidates’ learning is optimized, 
  • take intercultural dimensions into account in the supervision, 
  • clarify mutual expectations between you, the PhD candidate and other supervisors/people connected to the project.
