Summary
"Rewarding and essential, research supervision plays a key role in empowering students to become good researchers. Research is the crucial element of learning - building on a fascination with questioning the world and solving problems. In this dynamic context, there is a real need for good, supportive and empowering supervision practices for research study undertaken by students, whether for dissertations, projects or theses. This book builds on international experiences of good practice in research supervision at all levels into what makes for effective supervisory practices."--BOOK JACKET
