RHD Supervision looks at the University of Newcastle's Supervisor Workshop Series and links to internal and external resources to assist our RHD Supervisors to develop an understanding of their student needs and supervisory expectations and responsibilities.
One of our strategic goals is to enhance research training, and to meet such a goal requires an active and flexible program of supervisor development, that accommodates new supervisors and experienced ones and which draws on local, as well as external expertise.
The Supervisor Workshops Series draws on visitor and local expertise, to provide support for supervisors to deliver up-to-date, empirically grounded information and to provide access to best practice.
There is now significant international literature on research training, supervision as well as, national and international networks of researchers in the field.
The national body, The Council of Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies in Australia (DDOGS) produce policy and position papers, that also can be used to guide supervision practice.
The University also subscribes to fIRST - for Improving Research Supervision and Training established in 2000 to provide resources for supervisors and research students across Australia and NZ.
Register of Supervisors
The Register of Supervisors allows students to search for a potential supervisor. Prospective RHD applicants are encouraged to consult with academics in their chosen field prior to submitting an application for admission.
The register draws information from the Research Portfolio Manager (RPM). Supervisors can nominate projects as 'Available for RHD Students' via the RPM system.
