Sammanfattning (abstract):
This paper explores the role the meeting between supervisors and students played in the PhD process. Applying a phenomenographic methodology, PhD students and supervisors were interviewed before and after a meeting were conducted. Two identified themes (the knowledge negotiation and the supervisor-supervisee relationship) gave rise to a set of phenomenographic categories, an outcome space, based on material from pre and post interviews with supervisors and supervisees. The knowledge negotiation theme is described as student centric (student as learner, student as teacher and student as colleague) and the supervisor-supervisee relationship as supervisor centric (supervisor as guide, motivator, protector and coach. Parallels are drawn between the two types of learnings’ as described by Bowden and Marton (1998) (‘learning on the collective level’ and ‘learning on the individual level’) and the way supervisors describe aspects that relate to learning moving from the individual level to the collective level where as students describe aspects that suggest the focus is on the individual learning in the PhD process.
