The Outstanding Supervisors Video -
how to supervise a doctorate

In this video, three experienced academics, all shortlisted for a national award for Outstanding Research Supervisor, share their ideas and insights about supervising a doctorate. And their students explain why they nominated their supervisors for the award.  This video was made in cooperation with University of Warwick, London School of Economics and Queen's University Belfast.

The video is a unique resource for anyone new to doctoral supervision, and will help more experienced supervisors to reflect on their practice. It will also help research students understand what to expect from their supervisors.

Topics include judging the right balance between being supportive and challenging, how the relationship changes as a doctoral project proceeds, how to take an interest in the whole person, not just the researcher, and how supervision fits into an academic career.

Academic consultant: Prof John Wakeford (Missenden Centre)
