Research Supervisor Workshops
Research Supervisor Workshops are primarily intended as an induction for new supervisors. However more experienced supervisors or new members of LJMU staff who may have supervised postgraduate research students at other Universities are welcome to attend to refresh their supervisory skills or to learn about LJMU’s regulations and requirements for postgraduate research.
The main aims of the programme are to:
- Provide guidance to staff regarding the role and responsibilities of supervisors for MPhil/PhD Students
- Familiarise staff with LJMU’s Code of Practice for Supervisors and Postgraduate Research Students and the University’s Research Degree Regulations
- Advise staff on support mechanisms within Faculties and the University
- To address issues of particular concern to individual members of staff
These aims are achieved through a combination of informal talks and group work looking at relevant case studies.
