Preparation for workshop 1: All participants have to write a story about a real experience of PhD Supervision. It is best to choose a situation that offered a challenge and it is an advantage if the problem has not yet been solved. If you do not have an experience of PhD supervision, an experience from being a PhD student yourself or from supervision of master students can be used. The story will be used in the planning of the course and you must be willing to share it with the other participants. The volume is approx. 1 A4 page and all names must be anonymous. Please write your own name on the top of the page, give your story a title and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org at latest October 11, 2017.
