VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN SUPERVISION
CANDIDATE



"Significant to my supervision practice is providing students with that critical acuity, to be critical, to be self-reflexive, to want to push, to continue to push, to have a sense of confidence in their abilities, and to understand their limitations, to take the risks to push the boundaries of knowledge and to question the fundamental givens of any particular discipline or sub-discipline that they may be working within, and to have that self confidence. "Prof Laurajane Smith
"I want students to be confident enough to set research agendas and political and ethical agendas and strategies for themselves, and to have the ability to stick to those to allow that sense of purpose to inform their research."Prof Laurajane Smith
