Synopsis

Historically, it has been presumed that being an experienced researcher was enough in itself to guarantee effective supervision. This has always been a dubious presumption and it has become an untenable one in the light of global developments in the doctorate itself and in the candidate population which have transformed demands upon expectations of supervisors.





This handbook will assist new and experienced supervisors to respond to these changes. Divided into six parts the book looks at the following issues:









changing contexts of doctoral supervision

recruiting, selecting and working with doctoral candidates

supporting the research project

supporting candidates of all nationalities and academic backgrounds

supporting completion of projects and examination

evaluation and dissemination of practice.





A Handbook for Doctoral Supervisors focuses on the practical needs of supervisors, draws examples from a wide range of countries and uses self-interrogation as a means of encouraging readers to reflect upon their practice, making it an essential read for anyone involved in doctoral supervision.
