Supervisor training at NOVA provides professional development opportunities to Ph.D. supervisors. The aims of the course are to inform and to discuss supervision in general and the role of the supervisor at NOVA. The training also aims to enhance the supervisors’ professional competencies by offering training in the same transversal domains of the Ph.D. students’ courses.
Although supervision is one of the most crucial elements of the academic work, most current supervisors receive no specific supervisory training during their careers. This course aims to fill that gap, focusing specifically on the student–supervisor relationship as a key element in success of a PhD journey. Topics covered in this 2-day course include:
At the end, we expect that the course may provide the participants a framework that can help them to expand the range of approaches that a supervisor should use in routine work.
Supervisor training at NOVA provides professional development opportunities to NOVA Ph.D. students' Supervisors (PhD holders: professors, researchers and post-docs).
