Supervising Undergraduate Theses: A Faculty Conversation

Thursday, February 23, 2023, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

As members of the inaugural cohort of BA students prepare to write their theses, we invite faculty supervisors to join a conversation about the undergraduate supervision experience with members of the Elkana Center and faculty coordinating the undergraduate thesis seminar for students.

Academic supervision involves a relationship between attentive supervisor(s) and active engagement and contribution from student(s). The importance of the supervisor in helping students to improve their performance is clear, but the ways in which such supervision happen can vary greatly across institutions, disciplines, and degree level. In this facilitated workshop, we will share insights from research and invite current undergraduate supervisors to reflect on their supervisory approaches and experiences, reflect on the different stages and components of the supervisory process, and reflect on it what is distinctive about the CEU undergraduate thesis experience.
