  1. HDR in Human Sciences • Key tasks in March 2009 • Continue preparation for AUQA visit • Centralise Faculty HDR administration and create associated position descriptions • Finalise web design and content • Finalise resource guidelines (research support and space allocation) • Establish lines of communication with HDR candidates • Establish planning committee for Research Showcase in November

  2. HDR in Human Sciences • Structure of responsibility for HDR in the Faculty • Ethics • Supervisor training • Commencement and completion targets 2009 • Pathway programs • Commencement programs • Thesis by publication • Minimum resource allocation • Responses to feedback • Research seminars • Knowledge transfer • Joint PhD and co-tutelle programs

  3. Structure of responsibility for HDR in the Faculty (1) Faculty HDR Sub-committee has been established with professional staff, academic staff and student members. It includes all Departmental HDR coordinators. It reports to the Faculty Board.

  4. Structure of responsibility for HDR in the Faculty (2) Signature delegations have been put in place. For all key pathway indicators (eg commencement reports, progress reports, appointment of examiners, reports on examiners’ reports, certification of corrections), there will be the involvement of • Principal supervisor • Head of Department or HDR Coordinator • AD HDR

  5. Ethics • Ethics applications to be streamlined • New Faculty-based ethics processes


  6. Supervisor training • Supervisor register to be completed • Separate training modules for experienced and inexperienced supervisors • Supervisor mentoring through co-supervision

  7. Commencement and completion targets 2009 • Commencement target: 100 • 28 enrolments to date, possibly 60 by end S1 • Marketing strategies to be established in 2009 • Completion target 64 • Likely to be near achievement by end S1

  8. Pathway programs • Review of PG Certificate Research programs • Possible Faculty-wide program to include areas not yet covered

  9. Commencement programs • Central commencement program • Faculty commencement program • Department commencement program • Commencement programs to be reviewed in March-April

  10. Thesis by publication • Faculty guide to thesis by publication to be developed, building on existing guides • Thesis by publication to be encouraged in line with University strategies

  11. Minimum resource allocation • Different sections of the Faculty have developed different practices in allocation of resources to HDR candidates • Recognition that different disciplines have different needs • Development of a statement of minimum support

  12. Responses to feedback • Faculty HDR Sub-committee to report on responses to feedback from PREQ, MUSEQ-R and other feedback mechanisms

  13. Research seminars • Programs of research seminars at different levels: • Research Centre • Department • Faculty • Interdisciplinary seminars grouped around research questions rather than research paradigms • Faculty Research Showcase event

  14. Knowledge transfer • Encouragement of knowledge sharing through: • Publications, ensuring compliance with library information ethics and other guidelines • Conference presentations • Partnerships with industry • Interaction with end-users, eg • Hospital • Hearing hub • Professional communication

  15. Joint PhD and co-tutelle programs • Increase number of candidates on joint PhD programs • Ensure that joint PhD agreements lead to development of collaborative research between institutions • Develop programs within a strategy of developing international partnerships
