Welcome to the CPC supervision development course. For the second time, this course brings together academics from five African and four European universities to collaboratively build our supervision capacity.
This course is aimed at building supervisory capacity across countries. The course content, methodologies and modes of delivery consider the diverse conditions in which supervisors work as well as the differences in the postgraduate process across disciplines and programmes.
The course has three major themes:
As supervisors, we all face challenges – our students are diverse in their personalities, abilities and backgrounds and many of us face the conflicting pressures of teaching, publishing and supervising. In this course, we have the opportunity to talk about how we can strengthen our supervision practices, and recognise the complexities of the circumstances in which we find ourselves.
