Higher Degree Research (HDR) Supervision Development Workshops are a core component of the ANU HDR Supervision Development Framework.

There are two series of ANU-wide workshops:

  1. Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops are directed at those new to supervision, but all HDR supervisors are welcome. Participation in a Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshop is a required component of supervisor registration for those new to supervision. The Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops are currently offered only online. We’ll resume face-to-face workshops when 'Return to Campus' measures allow. We’ll update this webpage and advise in the monthly Research & Innovation News. Please visit the Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops webpage to register for one of these workshops;
  2. a second series of workshops address a range of topics relevant to good practice in HDR supervision, including masterclass panels. These workshops are currently offered only online. We’ll resume face-to-face workshops when 'Return to Campus' measures allow. We’ll update this webpage and advise in the monthly Research & Innovation News. Details about the 2020 program will be listed below as they are confirmed.

There’s no cost for the workshops, and participation will count as a qualifying activity for registration renewal under the ANU HDR Supervision Framework.

The ANU-wide workshops complement activities organised by Colleges, Schools and Centres, including HDR Supervision at ANU Workshops. These workshops will resume progressively from July. We’ll update this webpage and advise in the monthly Research & Innovation News.

Developing doctoral writers – it’s more than feedback on drafts

Facilitator – Dr Cally Guerin (Researcher Development).

Focus – Doctoral supervision is aimed at producing a thesis as well as a researcher. Many Higher Degree Researchers (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.

Date/time – 26 August, 10am–11:30am. Register for this workshop. Note: This workshop will be delivered via Zoom (Zoom information).
