Using LCT to enhance postgraduate supervision

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Postgraduate education is assessed through a written thesis but supervisors often battle to make the disciplinary norms explicit.
In this workshop, we demonstrate the ways in which Specialization and Semantics can be used to make the tacit rules of disciplinary knowledge creation more explicit in the supervision space. LCT provides key tools that can be used explicitly or more metaphorically to reveal key knowledge building strategies to support students at all stages and across all fields.
In this workshop, you will learn how to use LCT concepts:
● in a broad brush-strokes way to help scholars to become more aware of the expectations of the discipline
● in a more explicit, fine-grained manner to scaffold the writing of the thesis
● to reflect on critical issues in the formation of a scholarly identity
The activities and strategies that we introduce in the workshop emerge from our own practices as a supervisor and doctoral student. As such, we hope the workshop will be useful to postgraduate supervisors, those academics who plan to supervise in the future, and to those students busy with their own PhD studies.
