Conference Background

The Centre for Higher and Adult Education (CHAE) held its first international conference on postgraduate supervision in April 2007 with the theme 'Postgraduate supervision: state of the art and the artists'. Since then, six more conferences were held, in 2009 on 'Postgraduate supervision research and practice', in 2011 on 'Promoting a culture of postgraduate scholarship', in 2013 on 'Candidates, supervisors and institutions: pushing postgraduate boundaries'. In March 2015, the conference theme was 'Looking ahead: the future of postgraduate supervision in the knowledge society' and, in 2017, the deliberations were around the topic: 'Spaces, journeys and destinations in postgraduate supervision'. The seventh conference with the theme ‘The global scholar: Implications for postgraduate studies and supervision’ was held in March 2019.
