CSU Faculty of Education Higher Degree by Research Forum

Spending the current three days in Bathurst with colleagues. HDR students and supervisors coming together to share. Great presentations by many students on their work. Also interesting general sessions, for example by Professor Sid Bourke from the University of Newcastle on his group’s (http://www.newcastle.edu.au/research-and-innovation/centre/sorti/about-us) research into what we know about PhD candidature and examination, Professor Tara Brabazon from CSU on “Ten Truths your supervisor will never tell you” (based on her Times Higher Ed piece http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/features/10-truths-a-phd-supervisor-will-never-tell-you/2005513.fullarticle), and Professor Lisa Given on “It’s all about the thesis [not]: strategies for building your career profile while an HDR student”. Good stuff in all for both students and supervisors to think about. And something to look forward to this afternoon, the CSU Three Minute Thesis Grand Finals!

And the nice thing is that while we are inside listening to interesting stuff, we can look outside the window and see Kangaroos just chilling out!Image
