In today's episode, we talk about supervision: both from the perspective of developing a good relationship as a PhD candidate with your supervisor, and from the perspective of being a good supervisor (as a PhD candidate) for master's students.
We talk about the importance of setting clear expectations, and getting to know the working style of your supervisor so that you can work together optimally. We also look at realistic expectations for how and when to receive feedback, as well as strategies for effective communication with your supervisor and as a supervisor, as well as methods for having fruitful supervision meetings that both touch upon the contents of the research and the overall progress.
Then, we look at the topic of feedback: how to give feedback, and how to receive feedback. Finally, we look at how conflicts result in supervision relationships, how such conflicts can be solved, and what to do when the conflict cannot be solved.
