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 Semester One program has been postponed due to pandemic precautionary measures. We will reschedule Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops when these measures allow. Please visit the Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops webpage to register for one of the Semester Two workshops;
  2. a second series of workshops address a range of topics relevant to good practice HDR supervision, and include masterclass panels. The Semester One program has been postponed due to pandemic precautionary measures. We will reschedule HDR Supervision Development Workshops when these measures allow. We’ll update this page and advise in the monthly Research & Innovation News. Details about the Semester Two part of 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. The Semester One program for these workshops has been postponed due to pandemic precautionary measures. We will reschedule HDR Supervision at ANU Workshops when these measures allow.
