POSTGRADUATE SUPERVISION AS TEAMWORK: ‘THE AFRICANISATION OF BIBLICAL STUDIES’ PROJECT – A CASE STUDY

Willie van Heerden, Magdel le Roux

Abstract


The purpose of this article is to explore possible benefits, but also challenges and
risks, of group supervision, as experienced by participants in a particular project,
namely the ‘Africanisation of Biblical Studies’ project. The project involved the
writing of three doctoral theses by three African students from Madagascar,
Tanzania, and Uganda respectively. The four main sections of the article contain a
brief overview of extant studies on group supervision; the structure of the case study
project; a discussion of the results of a questionnaire on the participants’
experiences of the group supervision aspect of the project; and a summary of the
benefits, challenges and risks of group supervision according to the participants in
the project.
