Graduate Education Supervisor Development Grant success
Kelly-Ann Bowles (DCEHPP), A/Prof Brett Williams (DCEHPP), Nathan Stam (DCEHPP), Prof Terry Haines (Physiotherapy), Dr Cylie Williams (Peninsula Health) and A/Prof Stephen Maloney (Physiotherapy) have recently been awarded $15,000 under the 2017 Supervisor Development Grant funding round.
Their project will be looking at strengthening supervisory partnerships with our Health partners.
The proposal outlines a measured approach to engaging external supervisors and developing skills commensurate with Monash University expectations. As Monash continues to develop relations with more industry partners, the approaches adopted by this team to close skills and expectations gaps between Monash supervisors and their industry colleagues will have the potential to be highly instructive for other academic units.
Libby Callaway from the Department of Occupational Therapy has also received funding success under the Monash Graduate Education Supervisors Grant. Her project is titled “Building social impact and industry partnerships within Australia’s National Disability and Injury Insurance Schemes: Scoping graduate research needs in housing, assistive technology and support design for people with disability.” The grant will enable further work with key disability industry partners to identify and map current research activity relating to housing, technology and support design for people with disability, and identify gaps that may be addressed via graduate education programs, as well as supervisor capacity building in this area.
