Workshops and meetings on PhD supervision
ULB has been organising since 2014, in cooperation with ULg and VUB, workshops and meetings on PhD supervision.
The programme includes:
Advanced Workshop on PhD supervision
The Advanced Workshop is designed for academics who are supervising/have already supervised at least one PhD candidate.
Supervisors are all experts in many aspects related to PhD supervision. The workshop does not start from scratch. It focuses on concrete cases and on collecting, exchanging and reflecting on good practices: regular monitoring and communication with candidates, clarity about expectations, team supervision, supervising international PhD candidates... Tools are presented and explored.
The results of the workshop are direct value for both supervisors and PhD candidates.
The next workshop session is not planed yet.
Last workshop session: 26 October, 7 November, 23 November, 5 December and 7 December 2017
Registration is not open yet
Round tables on PhD supervision
This year, the round table will be organised in cooperation with VUB.
The round table will focus on selection of PhD candidates. Four supervisors will share their experience on the topic. Then, the discussion will be open to the audience. Here is a non-exhaustive list of questions that will be discussed:
The round table will be followed by a co-creation session (2-3.30pm), during which participants, on a voluntary basis, will establish a checklist for supervisors about the selection of PhD candidates. The list will be based on the conclusions of the round table and on their own experience. This checklist will then be made available to all VUB and ULB supervisors.
Language: the round table will be held in English.
The round table will be organised on Tuesday 27 February 2018, noon-2pm, on Promotiezaal (building D, 2.01 room, Etterbeek Campus, VUB).
The co-creation session will follow the round table (2pm-3.30pm).
Number of participants
Round table: max. 50 participants.
Co-creation session: max. 15 participants.
Should applications exceed places, the following criteria will apply: 1) balanced representation of ULB-VUB supervisors, 2) first-come, first-served basis.
Please, fill in the registration form.
Intervision is a collegiate support, by advising each other in case of supervision issues, in a group of equals (no hierarchy – strict confidentiality) who, within a pre-determined process, try to find solutions and support for a colleague who presents a case. A facilitator guides the participants through all steps of the process.
Intervision sessions will be organised in April 2018 (groups of 6-10 supervisors), according to availability of participants.
