UKCGE - Exploring Online Communities of Practice for PhD Researchers

18 Apr, 2018 — 18 Apr, 2018 (UTC +01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna   
Event summary
This full day workshop explores the phenomenal growth and impact of bloggers, social media influencers, and online communities each offering doctoral candidates advice on their PhD. The workshop aims to give you a better understanding of the role in supporting PGRs these groups have and how to this might impact provision at an institutional level.
Event details

Event Overview

How exactly do PGRs make use of ‘unofficial supervisors’ – the legions of online bloggers, vloggers and helpers that promise users impartial, professional and academic advice on their PhD? This event is designed to help Graduate Schools survey the landscape of ‘unofficial supervision’ on social media and to understand how it is driving the production of the PhD in the UK.

Topics for discussion include:

  •     ‘Unofficial supervisors’: How does the online community of PGR advisors impact upon researcher/supervisor relationships?
  •     What role can social media play in supporting the PGR journey?
  •     To what extent are supervisors using social media (the take up of supervision whisperer)?
  •     Social media as a means of peer-to-peer mentoring

Expected Outcomes

The event will seek to map the extent and range of PGR social media support, to compare the scale of experiences of PGRs and supervisors, to share insights derived from common experiences, and to ask how these insights might be used to inform institutional level decisions about PGR provision.

 
Who Will Benefit From Attending

Graduate School Directors and Managers and those involved in the provision of PGR support and supervision.

UKCGE - Webinar - Outstanding Supervisory Practice

12 Apr, 2018 — 12 Apr, 2018 (UTC +01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern, Rome, Paris, Stockholm, Vienna   
Event summary
This 45-minute webinar features an in-depth Q&A with Dr Matthew Inglis of Loughborough University, the winner of our Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year award at the 2017 THE Awards, and gives participants the chance to ask Dr Inglis about his approach to research supervision.
Event details

Overview

Modern research supervision has been re-conceptualised as a form of teaching and supporting learning - and is possibly the subtlest and most complex form of teaching in which we engage.

Today’s crop of outstanding research supervisors no longer passively transmit expertise but actively teach their doctoral candidates about how to research, and support them on their journey to becoming successful, independent researchers.

Our Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year award recognises the achievements of these supervisors, specifically the individual deemed to have created the most supportive, stimulating and inspirational research environment for their doctoral students.

About the Webinar

This webinar is your chance to participate in a Q&A between Dr Stan Taylor and Dr Matthew Inglis to learn about his approach to research supervision, how he teaches and supports doctoral candidates at Loughborough through their transition from students to independent researchers.

Throughout the webinar there will also be the opportunity to put your questions about supervisory practice to both Dr Inglis and Dr Taylor.
