Abstract

Introduction to Good Practice Guides to Support the Postgraduate Student Experience:

This Good Practice Guide to support the Postgraduate Student Experience is part of a suite of resources developed during the 2014 Strategic Priority Project: Engaging postgraduate students and supporting higher education to enhance the 21st century student experience, funded by the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching. This three part guide is primarily intended to provide recommendations that can be used for easy reference by the following stakeholders:

  • Postgraduate students seeking to maximise their engagement with their program of study;
  • Educators seeking to improve their curriculum and/or support structures in ways that enhance postgraduate student experience; and
  • University administrators/leaders seeking to embed institutional policies or frameworks that support educators and postgraduate students.

Most recommendations can be contextualised to apply to either postgraduate coursework or higher degree by research; however, some are specific to one group or the other.
