Timing, follow-up, and determined roles: the pillars of research, according to a round table discussion on thesis supervision

Under the title “Supervising a Doctoral Thesis: Discuss”, the Doctoral School organised an informative talk for all teaching and research staff at UIC Barcelona

Moderated by Dr Maria Cerrato, lecturer at the university's faculty of Education Sciences, Dr Josep Clotet, professor; Dr José Maria Martínez and Dr Rosalía Rodríguez, both tenured lecturers, all participated in the session which was attended by thirty-two thesis directors. 

Cerrato proposed five points for discussion that drove the session:  follow-up and guidance; qualities and obligations of a good supervisor; first meetings; time management and conflict management during the process. 

The session is organised within the framework of the three fundamental objectives of the Doctoral School: guarantee the quality and excellence of doctoral theses; ensure the integral education of the doctoral student and the transmission of a vision of research in accordance with Christian humanism.
