Reflecting on Masters Dissertations
Duke, Christopher
Practitioner Research in Higher Education, v7 n1 p34-48 Oct 2013
In this paper I reflect on my own practice as a supervisor of taught postgraduate students. By outlining my own process of reflection I demonstrate that, despite some minor issues, Brew & Peseta's (2004) ten criteria for good supervisory practice of research postgraduates can be used as tool with which to reflect upon and improve one's practice as a supervisor of taught postgraduate students. In addition, I demonstrate that Chell's (2004) version of the Critical Incident Technique can be used to obtain a student's view of their supervisor's practice. The results of an interview with one of my own supervisees provide support for the future application of Brew & Peseta's criteria to taught postgraduate supervision.
