Workshop - Supervising Research Students Flexibly

This on-line workshop provides advice and support for research supervisors who are now having to supervise more flexibly in response to changing circumstances. It will include strategies for:

  • Maintaining the relationship – meetings/virtual meetings (frequency, length, structure, tools)
  • Helping students with Plan B – dealing with interruptions to their research
  • Contingency planning as levels change
  • Responding to students’ concerns (personal, funding, time, access to data)
  • Supporting students at different stages (new, mid-candidature and finishing)
  • Mental health issues
  • Looking after yourself
The webinar will be interactive with participants given the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience

Who is it for?
