Today Ben Pham and I attended the Charles Sturt University Higher Degree Research (HDR) Candidate Welcome and Induction session. It was conducted using Adobe Connect, and participants "attended" while sitting in front of a computer in different cities in Australia and Asia! The 3-hour session included a welcome to new HDR candidates and discussed: resources, tips, relationships, responsibilities, writing, time management, and professional development. Presenters included the Academic Writing Coordinator and staff from the Research Office, Research Professional Development Office, and the Library. We were impressed at the extent of information shared and the friendly atmosphere created in this virtual environment.
