Project title

Does alignment of research interests matter? Exploring doctoral students' perception of supervisors' expertise

Project Aim(s)

In this research project I am working with a team of doctoral students and the Student Evaluation, Review and Reporting Unit (SERRU). The project investigates the influence of supervisors' discipline expertise on doctoral students' research in the Faculty of Education in University of Tasmania. It looks at the types of support they draw on from their discipline expert and non-discipline expert supervisors.

The authors have prepared two manuscripts for publication using the data collected for this project.

PhD thesis

Title

'An action research study of the development and implementation of a short course, with a metacognition focus, to develop writing skills for university students for whom English is an additional language'

Abstract

EAL students in many countries, spend many years of formal English instruction in schools. They, however, lack the English language skills to do the assignments relating to academic writing skills at universities in which English is the medium of instruction. If all the years of academic writing instruction were not sufficient to enable them to reach a standard of proficiency in academic writing, how can it be possible to design a short course, which will take them up to the required level of competence based on their own perception? The course must be short as it is a supplement as bridge to their main academic field. If years of formal schooling did not succeed, how can such a short course be designed?
