Technology-enabled undergraduate and postgraduate research supervision

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review


In this special issue of the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, we have focused on how technology is utilised in undergraduate and postgraduate supervision practices to enhance the learning of research students. The views of supervisors and research students are taken into account, especially in terms of the ways in which technological tools are used to engage supervisors and students to work with each other, often when they are located in different parts of the world. In this editorial, we consider various examples of technology in association with strategies and processes of supervision that are supervisor-driven or student-driven. Not only have the authors of the articles in this special issue considered in-house established technologies such as learning management systems and online thesis management systems, they have also explored artificial intelligence and tailor-made online professional development programmes to manage and facilitate research supervision. Copyright © 2023 Kwong Nui Sim, Maria Northcote, Cher Ping Lim.
