Weaknesses

Program

could be less packed

Because it is a workshop, instead of a program module, it was difficult to conduct formative assessment

 

Slide7

Opportunities

Improve supervisor/supervisee relationship

Improve completion rate

Enhance number of publication

Attract more graduate students

It serves as a platform to share, to support, and

to normalize challenges

Threats

Group exercises using case studies to help them try the different styles

Open discussion to exchange ideas on their existing supervisory style

Administer a pre-post evaluation of supervisory style(s) and how they apply to different students/needs

By the end of the study session, participants should be able to identify their own style(s) within the presented styles and apply them

To ascertain application of learned concepts, there will be post workshop evaluation from the students

Slide11

3.

Supervisors will have the ability to handle challenges that arise in the supervisory relationship
