Summary
In Australian Higher Education institutions, there is wide variation in Higher Degree by Research (HDR) policies and procedures that govern research training including admissions, assessment, training and supervision. This project aims to develop a Best Practice Framework that will inform and guide research-training excellence in Australia with a view to promoting quality and standards. The Framework will consider key processes from HDR candidate application through to graduation including admissions, supervision, assessment, performance indicators, and other elements considered important in the candidates' journey. The framework will be developed by sharing best practice principles, processes and performance indicators in Australia, and informed by research training best practice in other countries such as the United Kingdom and United States. The Deans and Directors of Graduate Schools (DDOGS), with advice from an international expert panel will provide direction for the project. Once complete, Edith Cowan University will implement the framework as an exemplar for other Australian institutions to consider.
