Inspire is Australia’s first online HDR candidature management system to enable the ‘digital doctorate’. Students – and their supervisors – can track the progress of their candidature, request changes to their candidature and submit their thesis for online examination. In addition, students can track the research training skills they have attained against the Vitae researcher development framework, set goals and plan for career outcomes.
Flinders researchers can use Inspire to complete the HDR Supervisor Development Program and track their development against their compliance to be HDR supervisors.
In 2021 Inspire will deliver further functionality for the online examinations module, the new Register of HDR Supervisors that will assist the Office of Graduate Research to facilitate supervisory teams for students and demonstrate compliance against national requirements, and a certification of skills development for HDR graduates.
For the first time in any Australian University, it is possible for HDR students to manage all aspects of their candidature using just the one system, Inspire, accessible at any time, from anywhere in the world.
