Good Practice in Research Supervision



Staff, Students

Series: Good Practice in Research Week

Speakers: Professor Pam Parker and Richard Alderman

Supervision of PhD students is a skill that can be developed. The background, requirements and expectations placed upon City’s postgraduate researchers might be quite different to your personal experience.

As part of Good Practice in Research Week’s day of PhD workshops for staff and PhD Students, this session will offer a refresher to research degree supervisors of City’s expectations for research degree students and supervisors, how to manage the research process, students/supervisor relationships and preparing your student for upgrade and examination. The session will draw upon case studies and is intended to be a space for participants to discuss their experiences with peers.

Professor Pam Parker is the deputy director of the directorate of Learning and Enhancement and Development which supports teaching and learning across the institution and staff development. Pam has been involved in the professional development events for the graduate school since its inception and specifically in relation to the sessions today.

Pam is the module leader for the Research Supervision module on the MA Academic Practice and has provided many conference presentations and is on the SEDA national conference committee as well as on the advisory board for the learner research network.  Pam has also undertaken a range of qualitative research studies.

Richard Alderman is City’s Assistant Registrar for Research Degrees, overseeing all the policies and regulations relating to City’s postgraduate research degree programmes. He works with the academic Schools to advise on University regulations, and coordinates central administration such as University induction events, external examiners for research degree viva examinations, conference funding and guidance for students.
