SuperVision provides insights into effective supervisory practices in art, performing arts and architecture. It focuses on the specific supervision requirements of inquiry through practice. Content is arranged in four sections – principles, processes, people and practices – and includes contributions from experienced supervisors and examiners presenting different international perspectives and offering best practice advice.

It has been developed via a new network for collaborative research training funded by the AHRB.

The book is aimed at:

• research supervisors of Masters, MPhil and PhD students;
• academic staff wishing to become research supervisors;
• initiators and managers of research projects;
• external supervisors from collaborating bodies;
• as well as students themselves.

It will assist research supervisors in meeting strategic priorities and requirements by helping them to support their research students more effectively and develop their own particular supervisory strengths with a more inventive approach.

About the Editor: Carole Gray is Research Professor and Julian Malins is a Reader in Design, both at Gray’s School of Art, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland.

Abstract
This article gives a brief background history of AVPhDs as well as some sense of the debates and the concerns surrounding the practice. It is aimed at novice supervisors who may not be as well versed in these practices as those who have supervised AVPhDs in the past. The author notes the interpretive approach to practice-led PhDs seems to be valued by students and supervisors alike, yet she also makes some recommendations based on testimonies from AVPhD supervisors and students that might help clarify best practice in this dynamic but somewhat amorphous area of postgraduate research.
