Stories of supervision

In this week's Times Higher Education THES the columnist Tara Brabazon gives some supervisor tips here. I like the way she starts with a story of supervision that went wrong, gives ten tips from her experience since that date, then says how she handled a potential disaster. One thing she did was to agree extra face to face time dependent on more words rewritten. Using that calculation how many supervisors would owe more time to their students, and how would it encourage students with writing block to put something down.

One reason I blog is that it forces me to write something.
