Gurr, Geoff M.
Higher Education Research & Development, v20 n1 p81-92 May 2001
Presents a model for the supervisory relationship between faculty and graduate research students. Defines "competent autonomy" and proposes it as a universal objective of the Ph.D. and of the model, which stresses alignment of supervisory style with student development. Use with Ph.D. students indicates that the model encourages students to reflect on and discuss their needs. (EV)
