The PhD provides a complex and challenging research experience, and at its heart is the key educational role of supervisor. Understanding Supervision and the PhD explores doctoral research as a real life experience, as understood from the perspective of key participants, including those who have successfully completed their PhD, those who are currently working towards their PhD, those who are new to supervision, and experienced supervisors.Understanding Supervision and the PhD is written in the belief that supervisors professional development is enriched by recognising the variety of perspectives, experiences and forms of PhD that shape the doctoral experience. This realistic approach places the complexity of the supervisor role at the centre of analysis, recognising the risks that accompany the achievements of the research process.Topical and relevant implications are drawn and questions are raised for supervision throughout. This valuable approach enables supervisors to apply these accounts to their own disciplinary and academic settings; in particular, the book recognises that there are no simple answers to supervisory challenges.
