Supervisor Accreditation 3: Guiding your candidate to dissertation completion

Target audience: Supervisors of research students
Materials: Please see comments below

Providing feedback on candidates writing...

Supervisors’ advice to HDR students on thesis writing starts with their enrolment. The supervisor will support writing through confirmation, various drafts of thesis chapters and related conference papers. Supporting thesis writing development will involve simultaneously communicating content information, pointing to additional learning that candidates may need to address, providing evaluative assessment and feedback, as well as contributing to the quality of the interpersonal supervisor-student relationship.

At this workshop we will examine our own experiences of writing a thesis in order to explore what might be needed by our HDR students. The objectives of the workshop are to better understand the diversity of HRD student needs, offer strategies for supporting the development of writing skills necessary for thesis completion and improve your ability to provide feedback to students.
