I was a terrible PhD supervisor. Don't make the same mistakes I did

I was a terrible PhD supervisor. Don't make the same mistakes I did | Higher Education | Scoop.it

I tried to make my students independent but they ended up burnt-out and depressed. A more positive approach is the answer. I kept organising meetings, filling in forms, looking at their projects, but not really helping at all. I tried to organise informal occasions – my poker night was so badly attended that my cat won several games."

What stops students from studying abroad? - University World News

What stops students from studying abroad? - University World News | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"...many countries have articulated an ambition to expose students more extensively to an international experience during their studies. Evidence indeed indicates that spending a semester or a year abroad tends to increase inter-cultural understanding and sensitivity of students. It tends to lead to internationally oriented careers... European ministers of higher education have agreed on an ambitious target of 20% of all students having an international experience by the end of their studies...Why students do or do not participate in study abroad is probably one of the most studied issues in the field. Commonly reported barriers include financial reasons, worries about delaying studies, discrepancies between academic calendars, poor language skills and family ties."
