The student-supervisor relationship can be the most rewarding or most frustrating aspect of postgraduate research. It requires good management from both parties to create an effective working relationship.
This three hour session encourages postgraduate researchers to take a pro-active role in managing the relationship they have with their academic advisors. Particular attention will be paid to making supervisory meetings as productive as possible. The workshop will focus on participants and in this session we will:
• establish the roles and responsibilities of supervisors and students;
• explore their unique situations in a constructive environment;
• identify the essential elements of good meetings
