STUDY NAME: Communication matters: Supervision interaction in British higher education

ESTIMATED TIME PARTICIPANTS REQUIRED FOR:

the length of the supervision meeting hour(s)

NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS NEEDED:

20 (10 Chinese+10 home students)

REWARD FOR PARTICIPANTS:

£20 amazon prize draw+free proof reading service for once

DEADLINE OF PARTICIPATION: ongoing

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT:

Language and cultural background can largely influence the way we communicate, including communication in supervision system. The Overseas Student Scholarship awarded PhD project aims to study the supervision interaction between students and supervisors, and particularly how this pedagogical practice operates in an inter-cultural setting. Therefore, Chinese students and home students are both recruited for this research. Importantly, the participation would contribute to our understandings on:

•        the communicative issues emerging from the meetings,

•        the cultural difference in students that gives rise to miscommunication,

•        the recurrent practices student use to indicate trouble and how to recognise them, so that we could make this communication more effective and thereby improve the supervision experience for both the students and the staff, given the increasing number of international students coming to study in York.

The participation will involve taking video-recording of supervision meeting:

1. Permission will be requested from both the student and the staff by the researcher, who would be willing to take part in this project;

2. The recording can be paused or stopped any time as the participants want;

3. The analysis will not concern the content or subjects in the meeting but the actions and structure emerge from the talk, i.e. the participants do not need to worry about any being examined personally;

4. The data will be kept confidential. The participants are entitled to decide whether or not their data may be shown on conferences and used for future research.
