Supervising distance and part-time research students (HDR supervisor development)

This event has passed Register

Event description

Research doesn't always happen on campus. Many HDR students spend significant amounts of time undertaking field research or on exchange with another university. Some students aren't on campus because they're balancing other commitments: currently, about 20% of UTS's research students study part-time. And with UTS's new PhD by distance mode, some research students might never come to campus at all. 

This workshop focuses on strategies to support research students who are studying part-time or from a distance. Topics under consideration include:

  • establishing regular channels of communication
  • maintaining progress and project management
  • supporting intellectual development and wellbeing through community-building


  • A/Prof. Dan Ramp, Director of the UTS Centre for Compassionate Conservation; HDR Director, TD School
  • A/Prof. John Rees, Director of Researcher Training and Research Development, Graduate Research School

This is one of a series of workshops and modules offered by the Graduate Research School to strengthen supervisors’ knowledge, skills and tools in best supervisory practices. For more information about HDR supervisor training requirements and development opportunities, visit the GRS website.
