This book is proof of what is possible when higher degree candidates and their supervisors collaborate to ensure publication of higher degree research; one of the responsibilities that comes with higher degree candidature and supervision. It transcends the limitations inherent in traditional ‘isolationist’, ‘master and apprentice’ relationships to reveal the transformative value of building productive networks among academics and students.
Written for higher degree research policy makers, administrators, supervisors and candidates in the field of education, this book aims to provoke departmental mindfulness of the higher degree research journey and, in light of this, reconsideration of the nature of supervisory roles and practices. It explores key research on higher degree research candidature and supervisory practices; reveals the reflections of 14 higher degree candidates’ experiences in terms of the impact and transformations that occur as a result of undertaking research, not least of which is writing for publication; showcases aspects of their research in their published chapters; and accords them first author status. Its five sections are:
- Publishing Higher Degree Research: key research on higher degree research candidature and supervisory practices, and the process of transforming students from candidates into published researchers.
- Learning with Technology: in Aboriginal education and in primary and early childhood education.
- Professional Learning and Practice: in the development of teacher research and inquiry, enhancing and assuring learning quality in Indonesia and Lesotho, and higher order thinking in teaching trade skills.
- Student Learning: in teaching English language in Indonesia, and the place of intimation in creativity and innovation in mathematics teaching.
- Curriculum Change: in teaching University mathematics in English in Indonesia, integrating graduate attributes in an Islamic University in Aceh, enabling innovation in Acehnese schools and reforming assessment in Rwanda.
