HDR 56: Research Ethics and Integrity - 1 & 2

Short Description:

This workshop will allow you to gain insights and engage in conversations regarding critical factors Research Ethics and Integrity.

Learning Outcomes:
 

Research Ethics: Part II

Research Integrity and HDR supervision:

Creating and supporting an environment that makes exceptional standards of research integrity straightforward for HDR students is part of the role of supervisors. In this second session (July 31) the Research Integrity Framework and the Macquarie Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research will be presented, which encompass standards of behaviour and practices expected of all researchers. Some of the most common research integrity challenges and pressure points for HDR students will be discussed, including issues surrounding authorship, data management, thesis editing, and plagiarism.

Hypothetical “integrity dilemmas” will be worked through in small groups and the session will conclude with participants brainstorming ideas and tips to foster honesty, rigour, transparency, and accountability in all aspects of research undertaken in their team. The group will work together to develop a “Supervision in research integrity checklist” tailored for their discipline.

Learning Outcomes Participants will:


1. Understand the framework, policy or resources relating to research integrity that applies to their research and that of their students
2. Consider the importance of discussing research integrity with their students

3. Learn about key indicators that might flag a research integrity issue with their students, and what to do about them

4. Reflect on their own experience as PhD candidates and supervisors (especially focussing on issues of data management, publication, and authorship)

4. Develop a Research Integrity checklist to work through with their students

5. Explore ways to support exemplary Research Integrity in their team.

HDR 54 Who is responsible for HDR career development learning & employability?

Short Description:

Regardless of the deficit in the data relating to graduate destinations of HDR graduates, it is clear that there are vastly more PhD graduates than there are tenured academic researcher positions. In this workshop we will explore aspects of HDR employability and discuss strategies which will lead to embedding career development learning and employability into HDR Supervision practice.

The aim is to assist supervisors to understand their own career development experiences and through this process to understand the need to help candidates develop greater self-agency, given that career development is a lifelong process and

The workshop will aim to equip supervisors with an understanding of where their responsibilities lie and how they can draw on the services and expertise within the university to assist HDR candidates to: identify their skills, strengths, values, goals and obstacles; understand career development and employability skills; explore diverse career opportunities; identify meaningful and rewarding employment congruent with their needs and interests; know how to build upon their network; increase their opportunities and build effective job application and interview skills.

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will:

  • Understand the difference between employment & employability

  • Interrogate their own experiences and reflect on career decisions – considering influences, values, strengths, interests, networks, obstacles, determination and cultural capital

  • Learn simple questioning techniques to assist their candidates to build greater career capability

  • Identify the reasonable and unreasonable expectations in relation to HDR candidates’ career development and employability (using a case study of their own or the ones supplied)

  • Know the resources available for candidates to develop greater competency in career development learning, job search, job applications & interview skills and where to refer candidates for information & support

Pre-requisites:  Registration for HDR 100 or HDR101 and HDR50

  • Complete survey by 3rd August prior to the workshop

  • View Career Story videos, HDR Professional Skills iLearn site
