Wow, what an amazing year it was in 2016 in the HDR Supervision space. You might remember that late in 2015 I indicating how I'd go about curriculum renewal in 2016.  Since then the slideshare presentation I made has had nearly 2000 views - perhaps reflective of the fact that the design of professional learning in the HDR space is not talked about very much. (The sector tends towards off-the-job compliance training, something that is not supported by the literature in professional learning).



 The renewal I spoke about has largely been achieved, although some remains in 'rough diamond' form. I am particularly proud of our self-directed learning strategy, and the development of learning pathways for HDR Supervisors as they seek registration in the MQSR. These pathways are now reflective of stage-of-career. We did our first steps towards introducing a 'HDR supervision in a digital age' series, and we conducted a Pilot of the blended learning version of the Mental Health First Aid for White Collar Workplaces into the program (soon to be evaluated).


I've recently introduced a changed registration process for HDR Supervisors, who now register for all professional learning via HR Online. This not only allows supervisors to keep a record of their own training. Then,  when PURE is introduced, this data will be swept into staff individual research profiles. 


In 2017 I am excited to be joined by Associate Professor Bill Ashraf. Bill is bringing his energy and expertise to further develop the HDR Supervision Enhancement Program (Continuing Professional Development - formerly known as 'annual training'. Watch this space for new things to come!
