It unfolds how work packages from the other partners in the Advancing Supervision project have informed the development work, the intentions supporting the development of the scenarios, consideration of formats, and how to involve participants. Finally, it describes the structure and content of the online interactive resource with training modules that are the outcome of the work package.

Henry Rogers   |   Glasgow School of Art, Core team Member

Henry Rogers

Glasgow School of Art, Core team Member

is MFA Programme Leader and Ph.D. supervisor with extensive experience (20 years) with regard to research and learning and teaching. He has been an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) panel member and has worked with doctoral students as Director of Studies.
This non-normative contribution from the Glasgow school of Art consists of a playful video work in which staff at the School of Fine Art respond to the research paper in which Ines Bento Coelho and Henry Rogers explore the development of artistic research environments, peer learning, an innovative triadic model for supervision and wellbeing in the doctoral process. The contributors were asked to deal with the text in a diverse ways, to give voice to it, and to ultimately attend to materiality by bursting into song. This offering evokes a mishmash methodology, a aspirational mega-remix, and a return to making of art, or so we hope!

holds a Master in Sociology from the University of Antwerp and specialised in cultural and urban Sociology. She conducted qualitative research in relation to practices of feedback in the supervision of artistic research doctorates in institutions of higher education in the arts.
To share knowledge and critically challenge one’s artistic work with others requires building a relationship of trust, context and comprehension, of language, expectation, empathy, degrees of consensus, and honesty. We will present a series of broad indicators of components that can lead to constructive artistic feedback in doctoral supervision.

It is liberating to look back at the simplicity of our primary set of verbs we have put on the board together in the end of 2018 to advance the verb “to supervise”: „to coach”, „to mother“, „to stalk“, „to question“ and many more. Constructing the primary mind-map was a deep listening exercise that took various encounters across art schools and project events. Each conversation added a new layer, still it is left to be an open structure. It is a simple communication tool for people around any table to map their artistic supervision practices, expectations, or distress together, to start the conversation always anew. We will unpack the process and the result of these collective excercises.
