Building the student-supervisor relationship
Research supervision is an exciting challenge and often requires
us to develop fresh approaches to one-to-one teaching and
learning. This workshop will explore the expectations and
responsibilities of students and supervisors and how these can be
negotiated to enable successful completion of the research and a
successful working relationship.
Cross-cultural research supervision
As we aim to increase the number of international research
students the supervision of students from a different culture
requires an understanding of their educational-cultural background
. This workshop will explore intercultural learning for staff
and students in relation to their supervisory relationships and the
research projects of students.
Supporting Students in Overseas Field Work
Students who undertake field research outside the UK have
additional challenges involving cultural, social and sometimes
political awareness; health and safety with regard to the specific
contexts of their study; and the overall issue of managing and
carrying out their field research. This workshop will explore
the role of the supervisor in assisting the student both prior,
during and after the field research.
How do I know if I am a good supervisor?
Evaluation of research supervision can be problematic as it
usually involves a one-to-one relationship therefore the difficulty
may arise for students about how to give honest feedback.
This session will look at ways that supervision is being evaluated
and discuss the possibilities of developing and enhancing this
process of evaluation.
Using Nvivo in Qualitative Research
NVivo is a comprehensive qualitative data analysis software
package. The software can be used to organize and analyse
interviews, field notes, textual sources, and other types of
qualitative data including image, audio and video files. This
hands-on workshop is a basic introduction to NVivo and will provide
you with the information and practice you need to get started with
your own project
