This workshop, by Dr Ilse Van Damme, is aimed at duos of supervisors and PhD students. It is meant to trigger discussion about the topic of doctoral supervision and to put it on the agenda by stimulating participants to discuss preferences and expectations (both during the workshop and after). The focus is on increasing insight and awareness, as well as on providing strategies that may help in building a strong supervisor/supervisee relationship. A tool that may be used as a starting point for effective communication between supervisee and supervisor will be introduced.

The workshop contains interactive exercises and requires active participation through discussion and sharing of experiences. There are two editions per year.
