The learning journey of highly experienced supervisors
Description: This session will explore the development of supervisors after their training years by presenting the results of a Masters Degree Dissertation work which involved interviewing highly experienced supervisors and analyzing their journeys of development. The very scarce literature on supervisor development is focused on skills and responsibilities and centered around formative and early career development. This study is different in so far as it considers what development looks like in more experienced supervisors.
This is an interactive session that presents opportunities to examine our own developmental choices. We will discuss the sometimes paradoxical findings of this research and will come out with a sense of what new sources of development look like.
