Professor Felix Maringe will present this seminar during the Wits School of Education Research Weekend.

Postgraduate research supervision is at the heart of the knowledge production project of universities. However, significant weaknesses characterise the supervision enterprise. Based on research conducted in both African and European countries and on personal experience as both a supervisor and supervisee, the presentation explores the meanings of ‘doctorateness’, models of doctoral supervision, their strengths and weaknesses and ends with a range of strategic options for strengthening supervision at both institutional and national levels.
