The Higher Degree Research (HDR) Supervision Development team offer a series of HDR Supervision Development Workshops, complementing those offered by Colleges, Schools and Centres.
These workshops address a range of topics, issues and experience relevant to good practice in HDR supervision. Participation in any of these is a 'qualifying renewal activity' for HDR Supervision Annual Registration Renewal under the ANU HDR Supervision Development Framework. The 2022 program will be listed below as it is confirmed, and in the monthly Research & Innovation News.
HDR Supervision Development Workshops are open to all HDR supervisors, and are free; please register to receive the Zoom link or location details.
Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops are offered to those new to supervision, as part of the HDR Supervision Initial Registration process. Please visit the Foundations of HDR Supervision Workshops webpage for more information, and to register for one of these workshops.
HDR Supervision Topic Workshops, Issues Forums and Masterclass Panels
The current Topic Workshops, Issues Forums and Masterclass Panels program for 2022 is below.
Mental health and psychological safety
Focus – Rates of mental illness and psychological distress in University students are increasing worldwide, and ANU staff are working with students who are unwell or in some form of psychological distress. This workshop focuses on how to give appropriate support in such situations, discusses where our responsibilities as HDR supervisors start and finish, and will equip you with some simple strategies and resources to assist you in this context, while also caring for yourself.
Lead – Melinda Brady is the Senior Consultant Injury Prevention in the ANU Work Environment Group and is an Occupational Therapist with clinical experience in both inpatient and community mental health settings as well as long term experience in workplace health. Melinda is also an Instructor for Mental Health First Aid at ANU and has been gaining sound insights into the mental health issues being faced by ANU staff and students through the delivery of this program. Melinda is committed to practical, evidence based approaches to health and wellbeing that are both meaningful and effective in our time pressured daily routines.
Date/time – 16 November, 12pm–1:30pm. Register for this workshop. Note: This workshop will be delivered via Zoom (Zoom information).
