As a postgrad student I'm happy that this course exists! Through stirring articles on different psychological aspects of writing a thesis and lively discussions on forum, on twitter and during live chats, professors and fellow students really help and support each other. I was surprised to find out that my problems with supervisor communicating are common and easy to solve :) The final assignment was challenging and fun at the same time.
The course also lets understand how the thesis supervisor feels and how s/he should behave in order to be really helpful. It had a great impact on my own teaching practice (I "supervise" freshmen's first written assignments at Uni). Thus, mastering this class will be useful for both sides of the PhD business :)
Thank you, professor!
