Professional Development

All members of the research community have access to a range of research professional development (PD) programs.  These are designed to provide support, knowledge, skills, tools and pathways to help on the research journey. Most are offered on-line, allowing the flexibility to attend from anywhere in the world, and once a workshop is attended, recordings and materials are provided as a reference.  We also offer programs which have been designed for specific groups, for example higher degree by research candidates, mid career researchers and research supervisors.

Whatever your requirements, discuss them with your supervisory team and map out a research professional development program that will meet your needs and progressively build your knowledge and skills in areas of importance to you and your research career.

Typically, the first workshop for most HDR candidates is the on-line induction workshop, attendance at which is usually a requirement of probation. This workshop helps provide a clear understanding of how to get started in your candidature, the various CSU entities that can support you during your HDR candidature, networking with other HDR candidates and other CSU staff, and to ask any questions you may have.  To make a suggestion for a future workshop topic, please contact us at researchpd@csu.edu.au.

Faculty Workshops/Forums

Individual Faculties also conduct workshops/forums.  These provide an opportunity to discuss and present your work in a supportive environment with other HDR candidates and academics as well as give you important feedback to facilitiate the production of a high quality thesis.
