Seminar for doctoral supervisors

The role of doctoral supervisor involves exchanging experiences with colleagues. The thematic seminars provide KI supervisors with a forum for competence development and regular opportunities to meet colleagues in a similar situation.

These seminars allow participants to discuss matters and exchange experiences relating to their supervisory role and to keep themselves updated on the latest news connected to doctoral education. The seminar programme varies; sometimes we invite speakers to share their own experiences as supervisors, or experts to hold talks on particular issues. The aims are to help participants understand their own position as supervisors and to inspire and encourage them to find their own ways of dealing with the challenges that the role brings.
