Abstract

Based on client perception and feedback about Scholarly Information and Learning Services’ (SILS) purpose and effectiveness at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), a review and realignment of SILS occurred in 2015-2016. As part of this realignment, the position of Learning Advisor Higher Degree by Research (HDR) was created to provide HDR students with dedicated and targeted learning support to better facilitate their needs. As this was a new position operating within a new structure there were no clear indications of HDR student need at USQ or how those needs might best be addressed.

In order to provide direction to the newly created role of Learning Advisor HDR this project examined the perceived generic academic skill needs of HDR students across discipline and cohorts at USQ.
