Online resource for doctoral supervisors

Posted in: Academic staff development

Doctoral supervisors at the University can now access a  Doctoral Supervision Online Resource aimed at providing practical guidance and information for doctoral supervisors at the University of Bath. It looks at the life cycle of a doctorate and gives an overview of the supervisor’s role at each stage, including University guidance and policies, ideas to support students, advice from experienced supervisors and key contacts.  This online resource can be accessed via Moodle and all staff can self-enrol.

Professor Jeremy Bradshaw, Pro-Vice- Chancellor (International and Doctoral) said: "Excellent supervision is important in helping students navigate the challenges of a doctorate. The Doctoral Supervision Online Resource aims to provide a single point of access for supervisors to support them in carrying out their role."

The online resource for doctoral supervisors was developed by the Centre for Learning & Teaching in collaboration with the Doctoral College, with input from experienced supervisors across the University.

The online resource also addresses an objective of the Doctoral Supervision Group in providing additional guidance and support for supervisors and raising supervisor awareness of support available for students. The Doctoral Supervision Group is led by the Doctoral College with involvement from the Centre for Learning & Teaching, the Students’ Union and a range of staff and students.

We are always looking for feedback to add to and improve the Doctoral Supervision Online Resource.
