Supervision of PhD students

As a supervisor of PhD students, you have a lot of influence on the progression of the student. But how do you supervise your students as effectively as possible? When do you give the student room, and when do you give them more guidance? How can you efficiently supervise the writing process? And what to do when things don’t go as smoothly as hoped?

During the course Supervision of PhD students of Hertz Training for scientists, we will focus on the coaching role of the supervisor. The course largely consists of practical exercises: participants learn by carrying out assignments, receiving personal feedback and applying the lessons learn in their work situation.

Marieke has given the course Supervision of PhD students at various Dutch universities, including the TU Delft and the Radboud University.
