Development and implementation of a DIES Online Training Course for supervisors of doctoral candidates at African universities

Call for applications: 04.12.2017
Application deadline: 1st Stage: 31.01.2018 & 2nd Stage: 15.03.2018

Programme objectives
The objective of the training course is to raise awareness of the topic of supervision and to convey knowledge in the field of doctoral candidate training. Successful participants should have a clear understanding of their role and responsibility as supervisor, mentor, and advisor, and should be able to effectively shape the supervision of doctoral candidates by using modern supervision and communication strategies.

What can be funded?
Per year, a South African university or university consortium should conduct two courses on the supervision of doctoral candidates (in English). The course provider is responsible for the development of the curriculum and course material under consideration of the target group.
In addition to the development and implementation of the course, funding also supports an annual network meeting of 20 to 30 successful participants of the online training course, with the long-term goal of contributing to the sustained networking of doctoral supervisors.

Who can be funded?
The target group consists of post-docs, lecturers qualified to teach at professorial level/professors, who have little prior experience with supervising doctoral candidates at African universities.

Who can apply?
South African universities. Consortium applications may also be submitted.
