|Course title||Examining DPhil students|
One of the more significant and potentially uplifting and rewarding developments that can befall someone becoming established and getting known for their academic work is being asked to examine a doctoral thesis. Thinking through how best to prepare for and/or deal with such a request can often catch us unawares. It may also turn out to be something for which we find we are surprisingly under-prepared. This seminar will incorporate commentary by experienced supervisors and examiners, as well as small group discussions to canvas commonly encountered problems and explore a range of solutions. Resources available to support examiners at Oxford will be highlighted, along with some relevant material from the international literature.
Please note this is a joint session for all disciplines.
This seminar normally runs once a year at the end of Hilary term.
