This poster showcases a reflective practice skills sheet, which has been designed primarily for the purposes of enhancing the reflective practice skills of Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students, enhancing the HDR student experience, and building the capacities of early to mid-career HDR supervisors. The benefits of HDR students engaging in reflective practice are multifarious. These include encouraging deeper learning and life-long learning; developing problem-solving skills, thinking skills and emotional intelligence; facilitating the assessment of competence and performance; promoting student well-being; and preparing HDR students for their career and future. The reflective practice skills sheet is a useful resource for HDR students and early to mid-career HDR supervisors, in all disciplines in the higher education sector. In particular, the reflective practice skills sheets supports HDR students to engage in reflective practice; and guides a dialogue between HDR supervisors and HDR students.
