Zen and the art of transdisciplinary postgraduate studies: Workshop Resources
This document is one of the outcomes resulting from a project focused on developing high quality outcomes and quality evaluation processes in transdisciplinary/ interdisciplinary research for use by students and supervisors.
The project resulted in several outcomes that can be used together or independently including: a summary report; identification of quality criteria; a toolbox of ideas for practice. This resource provides workshop materials that can be used by supervisors or supervisor trainers (at any level) to develop improved understanding and practices in transdisciplinary/interdisciplinary research supervision. A companion resource provides a PowerPoint presentation that can be used with the workshop material.
This resource includes a number of Word files containing worksheets that can be printed for use. The files include: a Presenter’s outline, including timing and a running sheet, and expected learning outcomes; Discussion Guides/Worksheets for participants; and a Feedback and Evaluation Form.
The workshop requires participants to have undertaken an hour of preparation with the two key outcome documents from the project, the quality criteria document and the ideas for good practice document. These documents therefore also need to be provided to participants prior to a workshop. The workshop template provides guidance on the questions and discussion points that engage participants with the outcomes documents as student supervision. It provides guidance for reflection, group discussions, and effective sharing of ideas.
These materials are very usable and draw on the substantial outcomes of the project. The workshop facilitator needs to be effective at managing the workshop but does not need greater expertise than the other participants. It could be run as a joint professional development session.
The workshop takes 3 hours. This is not an overlong time for supervision training. However, a considerable period at the start revisits the issues of transdisciplinary/ interdisciplinary research and participants spend 20 minutes working individually reflecting on the quality criteria developed in the project. If participants do make themselves familiar with the materials, they could complete the initial individual reflection (20 minutes) prior to the workshop, allowing more focus on shared discussion.

Physclips - multi-level, multi-media resources for teaching first year university physics
Despite its key position as an enabling discipline, physics content in school and university curricula is decreasing at an alarming rate. There is a real need for essential physics principles to be made widely available to an increasingly diverse group of students and academics. The Physclips package provides an excellent resource that specifically fills this critical gap. This is a very visual, engaging and easy to use introductory series into major physics principles. It takes an unashamedly rigorous approach. One of the outstanding features is the links to explain in an integrated manner, the mathematical principles supporting the physics. Other key features are the use of tutorials and animations. There is a very strong pedagogical foundation. For example, the authors have taken into account cognitive load theory, the use of narration to reinforce the animation and current web design approaches to produce this very sophisticated tool. The modules go into a good level of depth and detail and are designed such that they can be done at an individual’s own pace. This resource will be of use to anyone who wants and alternative platform to learn about the basics of physics and can be used either to support physics classes or to provide refresher or learning activities. Potential users include university and later year school students as well as teacher and academics who would like to refresh their knowledge. From a pedagogical perspective, these clips also act as excellent examples of how physics can be taught in an approachable and engaging manner. This is a user friendly interface that loads quickly and is readily navigable. It is also released through Creative Commons so there are no fees associated with its use. The videos require a Flash player. The clips currently cover Mechanics, Waves and Sound, Electricity and Magnetism. It is not clear whether further modules are planned. There are many physics videos and online resources available on the internet, but these Physclips packages are of the highest standard and will retain their relevance for many years to come.
