Podcast episode: Academic supervision – a superpower or just common sense?
In this podcast episode me and Maija discuss the paradox of academic supervision. A supervisor is supposed to be a unicorn but at the same time, is not being rewarded or incentivised to do the job well. Supervision is considered to be the most essential factor influencing doctoral student wellbeing, motivation and completion. How could we, as a research community, help make supervision a valuable and sought-after skill? I’ve written about this issue before in this blog.
I get a little controversial, Maija tries to calm me down and we read excellent advice from professor Jani Romanoff. Listen if you dare!
