Group Grimmel

Tweet Pitch:

What are the crucial requirements for establishing a successful PhD supervision? Let’s develop a mechanism to show research group leaders their individual strengths and weaknesses regarding the guidance of young scientists based on the feedback of their group members.

More Information:

This project aims to improve PhD education by enhancing the quality of doctoral supervision. Presumably, many problems rather result from a lack of supervisors’ awareness than their motivation. Hence, we will try to accomplish our goal by providing a framework for communicating feedback of group members to leaders without any party having to fear negative consequences. First, we will determine the critical factors for a fruitful supervision based on the literature and experiences of the participants. Then, we will develop a system for constructive feedback communication. Finally, a plan on how to broadcast our findings is to be established.
