Ideas exchange meeting notes, 23 October 2007

Present

Faye Emery, Jocasta Gardner, Julian Moss

PGR issues to consider
  • DL MBA
  • DClinPsych
  • Completion rates: Grad School are working on issues here, including extensions and non-ompletions due to drop-out
  • Role of PGT as feeder for PGR
  • What happens when a supervisor leaves?
  • Could we make more use of SITS for PGR monitoring, especially after submission
  • Training for supervisors?
  • Induction for international PGRs? Probably ok 
  • Masters by Research: as well supported as PhD students? 
PGT issues to consider
  • induction, including (especially?) for international students
  • complaints, appeals
  • extent to which there is good University oversight of departmental enhancement practice recently
  • note the large range of courses covered by the label "PGT": research training, vocational, professional/CPD, taught for the sake of learning
Specific courses
  • DL MBA - check on delivery sites
  • DClinPsych - how confident are we that published/agreed Regulations are actually practised/enforced? Does the new contract better relate to reality? Do we need to review Regulations?
