Supervision in Higher Education

An important part of the teaching mission in higher education is to supervise students at undergraduate and advanced levels. To do this, the teacher needs knowledge of subject-specific quality requirements, together with strategies and methods to effectively support students in their thesis work.

The mission also involves managing different aspects of the supervision process (such as power, approaches to student learning and your role as a supervisor). The course "Supervising students" gives you an opportunity to develop your own leadership skills and meet other colleagues in discussion about supervision.
