Abstract

"Introduction to Good Practice Guides 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. For this reason, the Good Practice Guide has been conceptually separated into three main sections addressing either the totality of postgraduate experience or particular features of coursework or higher degree by research: Supporting a quality postgraduate student experience; Good practice for coursework postgraduate students; Good practice for research postgraduate students. The recommendations are extracted and synthesised from the primary resources of the project. More detail and information about the project methodology and recommendations can be found in those resources – they are: The Final Report Three Case studies: (i) First Year Postgraduate Student Experience (ii) Postgraduate Student Diversity (iii) Postgraduate Student Career Development and Employability Presentations, posters and discussion at the National Symposium for Postgraduate Student Experience hosted by the project in April, 2016" -- p. 5 of the Report.
