For postgraduate research students, critical thinking and communication skills are foundational to their research activity, as emphasized in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level 10 criteria. Despite the importance of these skills to the successful completion of a postgraduate degree, there are few formal programmes in Australia for developing a student’s skills in these areas, with most of the learning coming incidentally as students work towards their degree. Graduate centres typically focus on milestone completion, writing and learning centres provide workshops, remedial support and targeted training sessions, but much more could be done to improve these central areas of skill development. Students, however, commonly look to their supervisors for how to critique existing literature as well as write and publish original research, with the latter increasingly being viewed as the principal metric by which the impact of research is measured.
