Description

We are redefining the ANU PhD program.

During the development of the new Strategic Plan we made a commitment to redefine our PhD program. We are now starting to work out what this will mean for our academic staff, supervisors and students.

Refining our PhD offers the opportunity to reflect on what we do well, what we might review and change. ANU has the highest HDR load per total student population of any Australian university, consistently high research rankings and an enviable international reach. To continue to provide some of the best academic programs around the world and to give our students the best opportunities for their futures, we have a responsibility to reflect on what we do well, and to discuss what we might review and change. We are inviting you to help shape the new ANU PhD and have your say on what the new ANU PhD of the future will look like.

To start the discussion Professor Imelda Whelehan (Dean, HDR) will be hosting open forums for all interested staff and students.

Questions will include:

  • What should a 21st century PhD look like
  • How can we ensure that the ANU secures our position as a world leader in graduate research education?
  • What is best practice for PhD delivery worldwide?
  • What changes can we make?

In these forums we will be using Poll Everywhere to allow live interactive audience participation. Bring a mobile device (phone, tablet, laptop or iPad) to enable you to join the interactive discussions.
