Aim and content
PhD supervision: advice, tools and practices is designed specifically for PhD supervisors at SUND and affiliated hospitals and research institutions.

Objectives
The aim of the course is that the participants will:
• Understand the complexities involved in PhD supervision
• Acquire process-related knowledge about PhD supervision
• Be able to transfer knowledge of the course to their own supervisory practices
• Be in a position to reflect on their own supervising practices in the future

Content
The course will address themes such as:
• Establishing a PhD position and integration of newcomers
• Roles and relationships
• Diversity
• Feedback and supporting autonomy
• Active listening
• Aligning expectations
• Early warning signs
• Motivation and self-efficacy
• Stress and burnout among PhD students
• Collaboration among PhD supervisors and co-authorships
• Careers

Structure
The course is structured as pre-course activities, three full course days (9-16) and an interim period with individual and group assignments. The workload is estimated to be around 30 hours.

Format
The course consists of presentations by the course teachers, group work and assignments. We expect you to participate in peer feedback on actual supervision in the interim period, to engage actively in the activities during the course days and to document your competence development. Tools to identify your goals and assess your competences will support this.

Target groups and rules for completion
• As of 1 January 2021 all new principal PhD supervisors at SUND are required to complete PhD supervision: advice, tools and practices (including PhD supervision: rules and regulations) within the first year of supervising a PhD student.

• As of 1 January 2021 all principal PhD supervisors at SUND, who have not enrolled and supervised any PhD students for the past five years as principal supervisors, are required to complete PhD supervision: advice, tools and practices (including PhD supervision: rules and regulations) within the first year of supervising a PhD student.

Further, all other PhD supervisors at SUND are welcome to take PhD supervision: advice, tools and practices – and it is also open to assistant professors and others employed elsewhere at an equivalent academic level – if seats are available.

Programme
The specific course programme will be sent to the participants upon enrolment for each course.
