The importance of quality postgraduate supervision practices in building Botswana’s knowledge economy

09 September, 2019

On the 4th September, BA ISAGO University, through the office of the president, hosted a Public  lecture. Prof Mosha, Dean Faculty of the Built Environment Arts & Science when giving welcome remarks, mentioned that the main objective of the lecture was to share experience and learn how to produce quality work, reduce dropout rates and duration of study on post graduate studies. The presenter Prof Hay-Swemmer, who is also the University President, is a renowned researcher and academic, who has published more than 100 articles and successfully supervised more than 22 students, as introduced by Dr Tadu, University Vice President.   Prof Hay-Swemmer shared her excitement about the post graduate programmes that the University is currently developing and her general vision of building a post-doctoral research culture in Botswana, that will facilitate access to our local great scholars.  Her presentation touched on the knowledge based economy.  She went on to emphasize insights on doctorateness, intellectual independence and doctoral scholarly voice. According to Prof Hay-Swemmer, a good PhD thesis must make a contribution, should be original and be publishable. Her presentation also gave insights on best practice for the supervisor and supervisees. The attendants, who comprised scholars, lecturers and students from various tertiary institutions, were given an opportunity to engage with questions, comments and observations, with the presenter on various aspects of research, which made for a fruitful further engagement with Prof Hay Swemmer, who responded with suggestions, interventions and expert advice on how best to address them.
