“The course provides a very good hands-on guidance to improve supervision. Very structured introduction into the topic/problem and detailed presentation of tools.”

"As a beginner in PhD supervision, I benefitted greatly from this course - will give me a good start with my first PhD students."
"Great course - we discussed many tools which one can use to improve supervision. No one says you have to do this or that - it's all your choice. In the end, it's our PhD students who will benefit and for us it'll make supervision more manageable and structured."
"I found it great that we transferred each tool to our own PhD students. We even practiced supervisory sessions and collegial feedback, which I may not have tried otherwise, but found it very helpful."
