HDR Supervision Topic Workshops, Issues and Masterclass Panels

The current Topic Workshops, Issues Forums and Masterclass Panels program for 2021 is below.

Making panel supervision work for you – HDR Supervision Development Workshop

Focus – Panel supervision of HDR candidates has significant advantages, but also introduces extra challenges for supervisors and HDRs alike. This short interactive workshop is designed to help you get the best value out of panel supervision, so that supervisors and candidates reap the benefits. We will identify different models of panel supervision, consider the roles that members might play, and explore strategies for working effectively in this mode.

Lead – Dr Cally Guerin is a researcher developer in the Researcher Development team at ANU. She has been teaching, researching and publishing on doctoral education since 2008, working with both supervisors and HDRs to develop effective research practices. She is a founding co-editor of the Doctoral Writing blog.

Date/time – 18 October, 12pm–1pm. Register for this workshop. Note: This workshop will be delivered via Zoom (Zoom information).

 

Developing doctoral writers – it’s more than feedback on drafts – HDR Supervision Development Workshop

Focus – Doctoral supervision is aimed at producing a thesis as well as a researcher. Many HDRs struggle with the writing, and it’s not always easy to see how to help them become more efficient and effective authors. This workshop explores a range of writing practices and pedagogies to develop the written communication of novice researchers. We explore common assumptions about writing to consider what works and what is unhelpful. After examining a range of approaches to developing writing, we look at some common problems facing doctoral writers and strategies for dealing with them.
