Higher Degree Research Training Excellence: A Good Practice Framework
Development and evaluation of resources to enhance skills in higher degree research supervision in an intercultural context
This project addressed postgraduate research supervision in a cross-cultural context from the point of view of both supervisor and candidate, and from the perspective of what institutions can do to support candidates and supervisors. Based on the research data, five different types of resources were developed: ten short video clips with supporting transcripts; 17 written scenarios with key ideas and suggested discussion questions; three documents outlining strategies; a checklist to determine departmental and faculty readiness; and an annotated bibliography with over 100 entries. Resources may be found on the project website and are freely available for use by both candidates and supervisors.

Dancing Between Diversity and Consistency: Evaluating Assessment in Postgraduate Studies in Dance
The project aims to refine a code of assessment for postgraduate research studies in dance in Australia, encompassing the two primary modes of investigation, written and practice-based theses, their distinctiveness and their potential interplay. The code will facilitate best practice in assessment for higher degree studies in dance and related creative arts’ disciplines.
The Report on the research project, 'Dancing with Diversity and Consistency: Refining Assessment in Post Graduate Degrees in Dance', provides useful information regarding the research methodology employed in the development of the project’s guidelines, which are articulated through its primary research outcomes: the website and booklet. In reflecting on the very recent history of dance in tertiary contexts, its ‘fledgling status in postgraduate contexts’, and the research methodologies employed, the report succinctly outlines some of the key formulations around research degrees: the transition from dependence to independence; the question of how to assess embodiment in the context of higher degree research; as well as the variations to approach and methodology encountered throughout the course of the project. The report also looks at the factors that contributed to the project’s success as well as those that impeded progress. The report is generous in its acknowledgement of contributing stakeholders, and candid in reflecting on the variations and/or limitations that manifested throughout the research process, and which are likely to influence future developments in creative arts research. By also acknowledging the temporal and/or dynamic nature of the research undertaken, the researchers leave the way open for discussion, dialogue and the whole question of knowledge throughout the expanded field of dance and choreographic practices in particular, and the creative and performing arts in general.
Education Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Statement
These Threshold Learning Outcomes cover the degrees of Master of Education (both coursework and research), Master of Teaching and other specialist masters degrees in education offered by Australian Higher Education Providers (HEPs) that meet the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) specifications for Level 9 qualifications. These standards were developed as part of a demonstration project funded by the Australian Government in 2010-11 and facilitated by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Academic institutions and teachers, professional bodies, accreditation bodies, and graduates participated in the development of minimum threshold learning outcomes for the discipline.

Measuring student experience: relationships between teaching quality instruments (TQI) and course experience questionnaire (CEQ)
Results of course experience questionnaires (CEQ) provide Australian tertiary institutions with valuable information on perceptions of their courses. Institutions also survey their students at subject level. This study aimed to determine the degree to which responses recorded on subject level Teaching Quality Indicators (TQI) are related to the CEQ, and whether TQI responses anticipate subsequent CEQ responses. This study found that TQIs at different institutions are not designed in a consistent manner and that only a small portion of the CEQ responses could be predicted by these TQI. The research established that course characteristics such as: the level of the degree, the Faculty and Department in which the course was taken, the course description, the industry and duties of those who have found employment after completing their course, all strongly influence the CEQ.
