Research Supervisors (CoP-RS)
The CoP was established in 2009 to meet needs identified by Associate Professor Aileen Cater-Steel and Associate Professor Jacquie McDonald during research for an ALTC Associate Fellowship. In alignment with the objectives of the fIRST consortium, it demonstrates national and international good practice to staff involved with research supervision.
What is the focus?
The CoP-RS is committed to providing a growth environment for research supervisors. As such, it has a specific practice focus.
What is the role?
CoP-RS meetings provide an informal opportunity for research supervisors to share experiences and acquire knowledge and resources to develop their supervision capability and enhance the learning journey of post-graduate research students. Past meetings have discussed matters such as:
- The challenges of supervision and suggestions to overcome problems
- Building domain knowledge
- Identifying training needs
- Identifying available training
- Policy and procedures related to R & HD Supervision
- Developing an effective supervision relationship.

Course dates and offerings for research supervision workshops can be viewed at Professional Development. The fIRST project provides additional resources.
