Working with partners, Queen's University Belfast, University College Dublin, Karolinska Instituet Stockholm and Orpheus (Quality in Doctoral Education) the project will explore; the role of team supervision, supervision practice in different disciplines and contexts, supervising different types of research degree, and understanding and combating poor supervision practice.

All partners and core members will review approaches such as onboarding, workshops, mentoring, observation of supervision, communities of practice, and recognition of supervision practice.

The impact will be a positive culture change in the way in which doctoral supervision practice is conducted, recognised, and rewarded.

We look forward to working collectively with consortium partners to move knowledge and practical approaches forward for the benefit of doctoral researchers and their supervisors.”

“We have always been keen to take a partnership approach towards delivering PhD supervision through the Supervisor Development Programme and the recently launched PhD Supervisor Network. RSVP will enable us to build on these initiatives over the coming years.”
