LH207V Doctoral Supervision


(LH207V schedules in pdf, 2022)

The Doctoral Supervision course is tailored for supervisors at KTH, and the overall aim is that you should be able to reflect on and develop in your role as a doctoral supervisor. The course is mainly designed for those who have supervised at least one doctoral student for a year, but you will benefit from the course will less or more experience of supervision.

During the course we will discuss the framework regarding doctoral education in Sweden and KTH’s rules and regulations as well as local traditions. We will reflect upon doctoral students’ learning and development, your role as supervisor, the relationship to the doctoral student, as well as to issues of value, such as ethics, equality and diversity. We will also discuss strategies to plan, follow up and give feedback on the research process and the doctoral student’s development. There are readings and/or written assignments to all course meetings also for the first one to be submitted in Canvas.

There are no requirements of previous pedagogical courses for this course. This course, or equivalent from another university, is an absolute requirement for the Docent title at KTH. The course gives 3 credits, possible to combine with other pedagogical courses to complete 15 credits in pedagogical training required for a teacher position at KTH
