Webinar: Guide to the UKPSF for Doctoral Supervisors

Analysis of HEA Fellowship applications has revealed that very few applicants include reference to practice in doctoral programmes in their submissions.  This webinar aims to raise awareness among doctoral supervisors how their practice can be related to the UKPSF.  

Presenters Professor Sally Bradley and Dr Stan Taylor introduced the recently published 'Guide to the UKPSF for Doctoral Supervisors', demonstrating how the UKPSF can be interpreted in terms of supervisory practice.  During the webinar they reviewed:

  • the mapping of supervisory roles to Descriptors 2 and 3 of the UKPSF;
  • how Descriptor 2 might be interpreted in terms of supervisory practice;
  • how D3 might be similarly interpreted;
  • how development / recognition can be supported by the scholarly literature.
