Abstract. When starting studies, support that can be implemented in individual and group supervision is important for the development of students’ personalities and academic competence.
The article aims to reveal the essence of pedagogical supervision and its application in the higher education study process. The research was implemented as a theoretical study, during which the analysis of selected sources – professional and scientific literature, research on supervision, and pedagogical supervision was performed, using induction, deduction, and comparison methods. The following keywords were used to search for data sources: pedagogical supervision, supervisee, supervision, supervisor, education, higher education. A total of 32 data sources were selected.
As a result of the theoretical research, a matrix of explanations of the concepts of supervision, pedagogical supervision, and a supervisor was created and a conceptual explanation of the concept of pedagogical supervision in the context of the higher education study process was developed. The conceptual explanation of the concept of pedagogical supervision developed in the research reveals the possibilities of extended application of pedagogical supervision in the higher education study process, including both the components of pedagogical supervision and the essence of supervision as such – to provide support for the growth and improvement of the supervisee.

Keywords: higher education, pedagogical supervision, study process, supervision, supervisor

The research has been implemented within the framework of the European Social Fund funded project “Academic Career of Liepaja University Staff: Quality and Sustainability in Doctoral Studies” No.
