Speaking at the workshop, Dr. Okwadi Tukei, the Dean Graduate School said UTAMU’s objective is to improve student research supervision and ensure quality research output. “As a university, we need to drive UTAMU forward and ensure we share knowledge about the best models and approaches of research supervision,” said Dr. Tukei.

The academic staff was taken through the models and approaches to graduate supervision, customer centered reach approaches and later reflected on how research supervision guidelines ought to be. All supervisors were tasked to read UTAMU guidelines before signing off any student’s work.

Dr. Michael Okoche, lecturer in the School of Business and Management explained the different approaches to supervision including the functional approach, enculturation approach, critical thinking approach, emancipation approach and relation development approach.“Different students might require different approaches depending on their level of knowledge,” he said, “I believe the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired will help us become effective in supervising students.” 

Dr. Okoche also advised the lecturers to always undertake constant evaluation and allow the students to argue and challenge them.

Dilemmas in postgraduate supervision were also discussed such as the mechanisms used in appointment of supervisors, the choice and quality of supervisors to mention but a few. The next research workshop for students is scheduled to take place on Friday, 28th February 2020 at UTAMU Campus in Bugolobi.
