Research Degree Supervision: "More Mentor than Master."
Shannon, A. G.
Australian Universities' Review, v38 n2 p12-15 1995
The problem of inadequate supervision of graduate-level academic work and research projects is examined, focusing on the lack of understanding of the supervisory role and disciplinary differences in research degree expectations. The concept of research supervisor as mentor is discussed, drawing on recent literature. Some efforts to train supervisors in mentoring techniques are noted. (MSE)
