Many early-career researchers cite getting and dealing with feedback from their
supervisors as one of the most frustrating aspects. You can wait for ages and
when it comes it’s not what you wanted. Feedback is essential to help you make
progress and improve the quality of you outputs. But if you just say “give me
feedback” you are leaving it completely up to chance. So what can you do to
ensure you get the feedback you need?
This webinar, delivered by Hugh Kearns, will look at asking more specific
questions and being clear about the type of feedback you want.
The topics covered include:
  • when to get feedback
  • how to ask
  • getting timely feedback
  • feedback on writing, feedback on performance, on everything
  • written and verbal feedback
  • interpreting feedback
  • dealing with the emotional reaction to feedback
  • how to respond to feedback
  • how do you manage the feedback you didn’t want?
