Waikato Research on Doctoral Education Unit (RoDE)
The Waikato Research on Doctoral Education Unit brings together scholars who are conducting collaborative research into how to improve practice in the broad field of doctoral education. Its members engage in research into macro and micro level strategies for supporting doctoral research and writing excellence. At the macro level studies are investigating the processes of supervision, central university procedures, and the creation of new structures and forms for disseminating the completed theses. At the micro level research is examining thesis writing processes - the types of supports required for diverse student groups during and post thesis completion. The Unit is available for collaborative and external contract work and is keen to discuss opportunities for this.
