    This resonates with what i see. Students come with income power and lecturers are income poor. this can bleed an ethical dilemma too. I know my students who address me as ‘my son’.

    Humanizing pedagogy is an interesting topic. However, most of the guidebooks and all discipline of research does not follow the contexts of individuals we interact with everyday. Whose background matters? The supervisor or the student- as both tend to be different and need to be handled as social beings

    What comes to mind is that students are the main subjects. Supervisors also have contexts and were exposed to different circumstances. Is it possible to find a middle ground where we both understand each other?

    On Moradi (2019 paper on publications before PhD, i find it a good way to promote publications through the process of acquiring PhD. This is the time the student has adequate focus, compared to when they get consumed by external environment.

    Thank you for analysis. I like your argument on PhDs vs publication.

    I feel your path was better because you finished first and then embarked on publishing, as separate chuncks of work.

    I appreciate the connection between paradigms and the ethical principles. Thank you Professor for elaboration

    Glad to get reminded of this positionality. Its that important to be aware of it as we support students as well.

    Its a good idea to keep a journal. However, one can improvise how they need to do it their way, assuming that the presentation is just a guide.

    I take note of what i read, and categorize it by research questions, and emerging questions, or interesting to know. However, going back to own journal can also be new review of literacture if it takes long. If notes were a self reflection, then its easier.

    Writing free notes, you also risk losing what the authors were meaning, especially at the point of picking points from the journal to the article

    Interesting to learn that you have focused on enriching your knowledge!

    Reading from own journal can also be a problem, when its to long after intense work.

    Wow!

    I though a scholar is related to a scholarship/fellowship at times!

    Thanks for clarification Kandie

    A scholar is someone who writes and influences debate, based on new knowledge and subject matter authority.

    Active in academic community means doing research and being able to share it in platforms mainly of fellow researchers, professors- with the aim of modeling new research gaps or even discussing how results can be adopted in community. It should have constructive criticism with need to improve presentations, methodologies used in research.

    Students can be introduced through co-authorships, helping to supervise students, encouraging them to publish in high impact journals and not surpressing their opinions. The student can be introduced to an existing supervisors network of academics, researchers- for instance can initially help to edit paper submissions, host websites….

    I have heard of academic Jealousy. Its counter productive. This happens when some people are academically progressive and others are stagnant, and the ‘others’ are senior or well placed in ranks. This frustrates efforts to progress furthur.

    Uganda has the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), that requires that all Universities set quality assurance frameworks that align with it. The nitty grities are in institution supervision policies hosted under research or higher degrees departments.

    Pretty similar in EA states, as Universities make own policies in line with national qualification frameworks

    Its risky that the discussion looks at the supervisee side of variables only. The supervisors are getting vulnerable to various difficulties to perform their work.
    Age-wise, young energetic supervisors- their views do not count. Older supervisees underlook them. Genderwise- same as age-wise. Imagine an inferior supervisor, in a complex supervisor environment where the challenge is fellow supervisors and unfavorable policies!!!
