Abstract

There is a strong need to improve supervision of higher degree students (HDR) and to increase their completion rates within the time limits. The project team will take an innovative approach to tackle this issue through using technology to facilitate the process of training HDR students. A major trend in higher education is the use of Web2.0 technologies not only to create knowledge collaboratively, but also to create and sustain communities of learners/professionals. There is a need to theorise and provide a robust framework for the utilisation of social learning media to create a multifaceted platform for practical support with conceptualising the supervision process. As a seed grant, this will involve trialling existing technologies and conducting a feasibility study in two universities for the support of supervisors and HDR students in their learning journey. The objective will be to enhance the process of research supervision in a more participatory way by developing inclusive pedagogy.
