A reflection on Effectively working with your Supervisor(s)

useful tips from the sessions: expectations from a supervisor:- regular meetings (once a month)- part-time vs f/t no difference in support provided- prompt feedback- available always a good idea to get second opinions – support particularly useful during the upgrade, at which point supervisors are expected to read the whole thesis + discuss before submission to examiner. – sounds like you could even request an examiner from a particular academic background. managing the relationships: – clarify expectations – (done already); got a verbal reassuring response that any help support could be asked for- keep them updated- provoke them academically- follow their interests- use their contacts; have received good support:- eg:- helped me to re-focus my research at early stage eg:- at one point I started thinking of a comparative look at US & UK FE governance and supervisor reminded me that my original idea was not that, which was very useful.- interim meetings c ould be about bibliographical scope – have done this and supervisor was happy with my list of reading
