There is a need for more African scholars and scientists to contribute to innovation and development on our continent and to enhance Africa’s participation in the knowledge economy. Due to the rapid increase in doctoral enrolments at African universities in recent years, many more well-prepared supervisors are needed at African universities.

This DIES/CREST course offers a flexible study opportunity to academic staff members, particularly novice doctoral supervisors, who are interested to advance their knowledge, skills and networks in doctoral supervision.

The course is presented over eight weeks. There are two offerings of the course in 2019, from 13 May – 8 July 2019 (followed by a practical assignment due on 9 August 2019) and from 14 October – 6 December 2019 (followed by a practical assignment due on 17 January 2020).

The course will also be presented in 2020…..more
