Educational Research: Who needs it? Proceedings from the Inaugural 2006 Research Higher Degree Conference held at Griffith University, QLD

By Raymond Brown, Glenn Finger, Carole Rushton


Moving beyond the bounded binary of supervisor and student, this edited collection exemplifies best practice in initiating higher degree students into the culture and practice of educational research.

Here, with mentoring from experienced researchers and writers, they can be seen coming to 'know' and 'do' research within an academic community of practice. As they engage with the expectation of developing and presenting a conference paper and responding to its subsequent blind refereeing for publication, they assist each other to full membership in the research culture of the university.
