Postgraduate Research Experience 2008 : The Report Of The Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire, Hamish Coates, Daniel Edwards

Dr Daniel Edwards

Each year, graduates of Australian higher education institutions who have completed a doctoral or research masters degree are invited by their institution and Graduate Careers Australia (GCA) to respond to the Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire (PREQ) about four months after graduation. This report presents the results from the ninth PREQ survey conducted since 1999. The PREQ asks graduates to respond to 28 statements about seven aspects of their research degree. The first 27 statements measure the quality of supervision, the intellectual climate of the department in which the respondent studied, the development of generic skills, the quality of the infrastructure ...

Comparison Of A Human Portable Blood Glucose Meter, Veterinary Portable Blood Glucose Meter, And Automated Chemistry Analyzer For Measurement Of Blood Glucose Concentrations In Dogs, Beth Johnson, Michael Fry, Bente Flatland, Claudia Kirk Jan 2012

Comparison Of A Human Portable Blood Glucose Meter, Veterinary Portable Blood Glucose Meter, And Automated Chemistry Analyzer For Measurement Of Blood Glucose Concentrations In Dogs, Beth Johnson, Michael Fry, Bente Flatland, Claudia Kirk

Bente Flatland

OBJECTIVE: To compare blood glucose concentrations measured with 2 portable blood glucose meters (PBGMs) validated for use in dogs (PBGM-D) and humans (PBGM-H) and an automated chemistry analyzer. DESIGN: Validation study. SAMPLE POPULATION: 92 samples of fresh whole blood and plasma from 83 dogs with various diseases. PROCEDURES: Each PBGM was used to measure whole blood glucose concentration, and the automated analyzer was used to measure plasma glucose concentration. Passing-Bablok linear regression and Bland-Altman plots were used to determine correlations and bias between the PBGMs and the automated analyzer. Calculated acceptability limits based on combined inherent instrument imprecision were used ...

John Keeves And The Australian Council For Educational Research, Rebecca Leech, John Ainley, Phillip Mckenzie, Patricia Knight, Jenny Barnes, Renee Otmar, Maureen O'Keefe

Dr John Ainley

This book has been produced as a tribute to the work and contributions of ACER's 3rd chief executive. Professor John Keeves on the occasion of his 85th birthday. Professor Keeves has made substantial contributions to key research studies, especially in mathematics and science education. His work laid the foundations for large scale assessments of student learning that are common place today and for better understanding the complex relationships between students home background, school factors and achievement.


Financial Partnering And Other Strategies To Help Centers Of Teaching And Learning Thrive In Hard Times, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, B. Philips Nov 2011

Financial Partnering And Other Strategies To Help Centers Of Teaching And Learning Thrive In Hard Times, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, B. Philips

Hal Blythe

With Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTLs) entering a period of economic downturn, the authors demonstrate how their Center has survived hard times through financial partnering with on- and off-campus groups. They also explain how to develop successful strategies for partnering (both financial and otherwise), analyze the dynamics of such collaborations, and offer some useful guidelines.

Nullilfying The Barbay Effect: Connecting With Your Students, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

Of course reaching students has always involved more than logistics. They always live in a newer world than those of their teachers, and speaking their language in order to wed the valuable past with the hip present remains an ongoing challenge. Barbay Effect? It’s a reference to the movie “Back to School” (1986) starring Rodney Dangerfield.

A Phenomenographic Study Of What It Means To Supervise Doctoral Students, April Wright, Jane Murray, Patricia Geale Nov 2009

A Phenomenographic Study Of What It Means To Supervise Doctoral Students, April Wright, Jane Murray, Patricia Geale

Jane Murray

We utilize the research methodology of phenomenography in this study to explore what doctoral supervisors understand supervision to be and how they enact this understanding in the practice of supervising students. Twenty interviews were undertaken with supervisors at three Australian universities to uncover “lived” experiences of doctoral research supervision. Five qualitatively different ways of conceiving supervisors’ roles emerged through phenomenographic analysis of the transcripts. Our findings suggest that while supervisors undertake similar tasks when supervising, they approach these tasks differently because of their qualitatively different understandings of what supervision is.
