Managing your supervisor with Hugh Kearns

28 March at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Register on Eventbrite

The relationship you have with your supervisor will have a huge bearing on your HDR experience.

New PhD and Masters students tend to assume that it is the supervisor’s responsibility to manage the relationship and can be passive. But it is your research degree and you need to be active in the supervisory relationship. Supervisors are usually overworked, under a lot of pressure and like all of us, are not perfect. As a research student you need to have some strategies to work effectively with your supervisor.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • how to deal with different supervisory styles
  • differing expectations
  • how to use meetings to help you make progress
  • asking for and dealing with feedback
  • dealing with difficult situations.

Presented by SUPRA HDR Equity Network and ithinkwell. All Usyd research students welcome.
