Event Details


The primary mode of support for doctoral and master students doing research has typically been that between student and supervisor, modelled on what has been identified as an apprenticeship-style of learning. While this style of doctoral and master supervision can be extremely beneficial, it is increasingly coming under pressure in the contemporary university. More recently a number of initiatives have developed that can be seen to respond to Boud and Lee’s (2005) call for more ‘distributed’ learning in the research student space. In my talk, I will briefly discuss the current higher degree research landscape in Australia and then describe a range of interventions that we have developed at UNSW in response to the evolving context.
