Course description

Workshop Description

The thesis is the final subject of the BSc and MSc programme and an important individual project for a student. Due to the importance and size of the project, the meetings between supervisor and student are often more intense and personal compared to those contacts in other workshops/courses.

Students expect certain behaviour of their supervisor, but the supervisor also has expectations of his/her student. Questions about responsibilities for supervisor and student arise. In this 2,5 hour workshop you will be provided with some general information about supervising thesis students at Wageningen University and discuss good practices, expectations, basic skills. Furthermore there will be room for questions.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop:

  • You are informed about supervising BSc & MSc thesis students
  • You have discovered the role of supervisor
  • You can explain some basic supervising skills

Target group & Prerequisites

The workshop is meant for teaching staff, Postdocs and PhD‘s who are not supervising thesis students yet, but are about to, at Wageningen University. So the workshop is only open for supervisors at the start of their supervising thesis students and who need some extra information and sharing about the do’s and don’ts. This workshop is an introduction to supervising. If you want a follow-up once you started supervising at least two students, we recommend the two-day course Supervising BSc and MSc thesis students.

Literature

None required, the hand-out of the presentation will be sent afterwards.

Certificate

None. This course is not part of the UTQ programme.

Costs

Participation is free for Wageningen University & Research staff involved in teaching WU courses.
