Welcome to a workshop on on teaching and learning with Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL).

This workshop is aimed for Supervisors of students at advanced and PhD level who wants to explore strategies for  group supervision of PhD students.

About the workshop

Collective supervision has become a common way to provide supervision at schools of higher education. In this workshop we present two different perspectives of such supervision, based on collective supervision of a cohort of PhD-students at a department at the Faculty of social sciences, as well as experiences from group leadership of research groups at the Faculty of Science.

The participants are invited to discuss and contrast these different approaches to group supervision, and consider how some of this might be implemented at their own departments.

We will look closer at:

  • the most important factors to consider in collective supervision and group leadership
  • how to deal with issues that may arise
  • some of the research basis for collective supervision
