The faculty has decided that all employees who supervise Master students must participate in Project Peer Supervision. This course will be offered to all permanent academic staff at HF within the next five years.

The course and the methods used have been developed by the Academic Development Group (Faglig enhet for universitetspedagogikk/FUP), and has been tailor made for supervisors at HF.

Structure and execution

The course is held once every semester, with 30 available spots each semester.

For each course there is a two day start-up seminar with accommodation at the beginning of the semester, followed by a gathering on campus at the end of the semester. During the semester, the participants themselves meet in smaller groups, about five to six times.

Participation will grant 25 hours in the participants’ records of completed required duties (arbeidspliktsregnskapet). Course completion will also count towards completion of the Course in university pedagogics.

The main focus of the course is the method of peer supervision in smaller groups. The course will develop awareness of the supervisor role, but also create a space for sharing of experiences and good practice.

Feedback tells us that this is a helpful approach for working with challenges related to supervision of Master students.
