Research Supervision Masterclass
This masterclass is aimed at all research degree supervisors. It will look at how to help both the supervisor and the student get the most out of the post-graduate research experience. It draws on the facilitator’s experience of working with thousands of research students and research supervisors across the world and there is also the opportunity for supervisors to share their experiences of what works and what doesn’t.

It will cover issues such as:
• Dealing with different types of students
• Getting students to write
• Getting students to show you their writing
• Giving constructive feedback
• Students who write too much
• Students for whom English is not their first language
• Motivating stalled students
• Problem situations

Hugh Kearns lectures and researches at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia. He is widely recognised for his ability to take the latest research in psychology and education and apply it to high-performing people and groups. Hugh’s areas of expertise include self-management, positive psychology, work-life balance, learning and creativity. He draws on over twenty years of experience as a leading training and development professional.
