PhDs via distance education

All but one of my PhD students are undertaking their PhDs full time via distance education. This is possible with the use of technology - and a level of creativity. I meet virtually with each of my students for 2 hours per week - plus we send numerous emails in between. Below are some photos of student meetings today. Nicole (in rural Victoria) met with her co-supervisor Kate Crowe (in USA) and myself. Then Helen (in Newcastle) met with her co-supervisor Sarah Verdon (in Albury) and myself. Isn't technology fantastic!
