ONLINE: Postgraduate Supervision Training [for postdoctoral fellows] (Part Two)


Most Postdoctoral Fellows find themselves involved in both co- and supervision of a variety of postgraduate students, ranging from Honours, to Masters and Doctoral students.  By virtue of their focus on research and possible further pathway in an academic career, this is a natural and expected part of a Postdoc’s development.


This three-part online workshop offers UCT Postdocs an opportunity to engage in understanding postgraduate student needs and good supervision practises within the UCT system (which is not unlike most other university systems).  Presenters drawn from within UCT will interact with Postdocs in a diverse and informative programme.


The topics to be covered in this workshop are:

  • Developing a good supervisor-student relationship (communication, MoU, dealing with conflict)
  • Supervisory styles
  • Giving effective feedback on the thesis writing
