DIGI-FACE: Strengthening Post-Graduate Supervision October 2021

The course is aimed at strengthening postgraduate supervision capacity by deepening the understanding of ‘supervision as pedagogy’. The course content takes into account the diverse contexts in which supervisors work as well as the differences in the postgraduate supervision processes across different disciplines. The pedagogical approach of this online course draws on participant interaction with the online interface, participant reflexivity to enable learning from one’s own and each other’s supervision experiences and reading of relevant postgraduate supervision related research. The course is theoretically underpinned by supervision as pedagogy (Fataar, 2012) which is explored in the first unit, and which frames the next seven units. The eight units are addressed in a fluid and integrated way.
