PhD and Postdoc Breakfast Club: Giving and Receiving Feedback

In the April edition of PPBC, we invite Koyote Millar to share some skills and insights into the art of feedback: namely, how to provide constructive feedback in an effective manner, and how to accept and work with feedback that arises during the research process.

Have you ever been hesitant to criticize somebody's work because you were afraid that the wrong tone could hurt their feelings? Or, have you felt like you couldn't quite formulate what you "actually" wanted to say to really help someone improve? Maybe you have been put off by feedback you received, which negatively impacted your motivation and well-being? In this edition of PPBC, Koyote Millar aims to take feedback from being something we feel anxious about giving, and loathe receiving, and teach us how feedback can constitute a powerful tool for growth and learning for both us, and the people we want to grow and learn with.


Koyote Millar is a therapist, coach, poet, singer & activist. They have worked for many years as a Senior Adviser in the depths of UiO’s administration, with project management and process facilitation, supporting individuals and teams in investigating and navigating difference, complexity and change. They are currently on a year’s sabbatical from UiO, while still loving its richness and nerdiness from afar. Koyote has a background in social anthropology and the humanities, a passion for music and meditation, a dedicated and imperfect practice, and a love of learning, listening and having a laugh in good company.


As always, we ask that you register for the PPBC via the nettskjema to help with catering expectations. We look forward to seeing you there!
