When and How [the Process]

  • Require skill set from PhD (and TA) STUDENTS;
  • STUDENT (PhDs & TAs) are explicitly asked for their personal ‘skill set’ – using a web form.
  • You MUST submit your skills set urgently;
  • You will be notified of your demonstrating duties at the start of semesters.
  • Examples of skill sets next page . . .
h ow many hours
How [many hours]

Demonstrator Hour: CS tries not to exceed 8 hours per week.

h ow to compile your skill set
How[to compile your ‘skill set’]
  • Your Skill set [technical strength] is entered on to a web form
  • If you wish to apply for demonstrating duties please do so as soon as you can - fill in the form but please be aware that it should be done ASAP so if you wish to be considered please fill in the form promptly.

NOTE: Once you have filled in your ‘skill set’ an administrator allocates

the hours according to your skill set and what\'s required by the academics.

h ow to interact with students
How[to interact with students]
  • The following advice governing conduct during demonstrating duties should be adhered to.
  • This is also in-line with the oral exam [that you yourselves will undertake] at the end of you PhD; and is given as one of the rules in the ‘Guidance for Examiners of Research Degree Theses.’
  • ADVICE:
  • When advising students [interacting in labs, tutorials etc.] :–
  • “… some intense questioning of the [student] may be needed, it must be non-aggressive…”
  • ___
  • References:
  • 1: Guidance for Examiners of Research Degree Theses, July 2005, Research Office Graduate Education Team, page 8 of 12.
important note s
Important NOTE(s):
  • NOTE 1:
  • School funded demonstrators must complete the skills form as it is not optional, it is mandatory.
  • NOTE 2:
  • There is an expectation that demonstrators will be available during teaching time.

School funded demonstrators are required to be available during teaching (including Introduction Week).

  • NOTE 3:
  • Holiday must be arranged with your supervisor\'s agreement.

Requests from school funded demonstrators to take holiday during teaching time will probably be rejected.

In the event of unforeseen absence (e.g. compassionate leave) please contact [email protected] immediately.

  • NOTE 4:
  • This year we will require everyone who wishes to demonstrate to submit the form twice, once at the start of each semester.
important note s1
Important NOTE(s):
  • NOTE 1:
  • Impressive use of the term “Mentoring” [Finally] on the Graduate & Researcher Development web site on there Workshops for Research Staff page:
  • http://www.researchsupport.eps.manchester.ac.uk/research_staff/programme/workshops/
  • The important point here is that the old fashioned [conservative] view of leaving the student to study, and find out how to learn TOTALLY on their own is slowly being overturned.
  • This [of course] has never been the case in apprenticeships, where the student is mentored for 3-years; this used to be 7 or more years of indentured apprentice mentoring – some of the time one-to-one.
  • May be we should all see ourselves as mentors:
    • Not PhD students,
    • Not lectures,
    • Not senior lecturers,
    • Not readers, or
    • Not Professors.

note from jon shapiro jls@postie cs man ac uk
Note from:Jon Shapiro <[email protected]>
  • “It is very important that students who are demonstrating be present for the entire teaching term (including reading week). …please make sure that … students know that school-funded demonstrators are obligated to be present during teaching and any who are absent are in breach of their contract. In general, PGR students are only permitted to be absent with their supervisor\'s consent.
  • As overseas students might be booking flights over the summer for the coming year, please make sure they are aware of this.
  • Thanks,
  • Jon”
