Abstract


  • Introduction

    - much of the cutting edge research developed in universities is conducted by Higher Degree Research (HDR) students

    - but institutional responses have been dominated by compliance-based metrics like timely completions that are used as imperfect measures of quality of the research supervision practice (Cullen et al 1994)

    - it is in the interests of both universities and government to increase the quantity and quality of research supervision (Latona and Browne 2001)- therefore careful training of supervisors and attention to supervisory practices is paramount
