There are many important aspects Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students need to understand during the first year of their degree. These include conceptualising your project, accessing useful tools and research services, and managing supervisory relationships. Facilitated by Lecturer and Learning Advisor (HDR), Dr Douglas Eacersall, this webinar will outline some of the things that make starting a research degree easier. This information will be useful for all HDR students at USQ and particularly useful for first-year HDR students. 

Presenter: 

As a Lecturer and Learning Advisor (HDR), Dr Douglas Eacersall provides advice to Higher Degree by Research students in the areas of managing supervisory relationships, critical thinking and reading, organising and synthesising information, presenting research, negotiating confirmation of candidature and academic writing. He collaborates with the Graduate Research School, the Research Support Team and Faculty research coordinators to develop and deliver research training experiences for HDR students. His areas of research include higher education, research training and development, technology enhanced learning and researcher identities.
