Effective Doctoral Supervision

Anne has conducted research into effective supervision and led programmes and seminars for supervisors and research students in the UK, USA and in northern Europe.   She is currently  researching case studies to illuminate international developments in doctoral education.  Her work with outstanding supervisors and advisors has been published by Routledge in 2012 in a practical guide ‘Successful Research Supervision’.

One example of a tool she has introduced to research supervisors and candidates is here. To use ‘Establishing a good relationship from the beginning’ she recommends that both student and supervisor complete a copy individually and then discuss their results. The purpose is to expose and resolve differences before they become a difficulty.  (There are further versions that can be used at different stages during the doctorate and a version that can be used for leadership development.) 


Dr Lee is also well-known for her conference key note presentations  and has also had invitations to speak, lead seminars or workshops at:  University of Tartu, Estonia, University of Southern Denmark,  SLU and Linnaeus University, (Sweden)  NTNU, (Norway), Henley Management School, University of Oxford, Buckinghamshire New University, Portsmouth University, Keele University, University of Cambridge, Royal College of Arts, Roehampton University, UCLA,  University of Sussex, Bangor University, University of Durham, University of Western England, Coventry University (UK) Makarere University (Uganda), University of Bahrain, and the Royal College of Irish Surgeons (Dublin).
