Talking about evaluation

Video and reflection questions on the importance of evaluation moments in the first year.

In this clip you will see a conversation between a supervisor and a PhD. As it is clear in the conversation, the TSP and the evaluation moment have a very practical and important function.

After you have watched the clip, please use the following questions to guide your reflection:

  1. What skills and attitudes were mentioned in the clip, and are there additional skills and attitudes that are also relevant for your field?
  2. Based on your experience, is the initial plan of the PhD effectively realised, or adjustments are needed? Can you elaborate?
