Postgraduate supervision: a comparison of the perceptions of students and supervisors

Lessing, AC. & Schulze, S

Abstract:
The aim of the research was to compare the views of postgraduate students and supervisors of the supervisory process at the Faculty of Education at the University of South Africa.  The research was conducted in two phases.  In the first phase survey research was employed by means of a questionnaire to determine the perceptions of students regarding diverse aspects of postgraduate research.  During the second phase supervisors’ perceptions of postgraduate supervision were ascertained by means of a qualitative inquiry using focus groups.  Findings included a number of aspects which participants found rewarding.  Unmet needs of students related to the planning of the research, research methodology, contact with supervisors, feedback, response time and examination feedback.  Supervisors desired recruitment of higher potential students who would deliver better quality work.
