About Us – new site http://doctoralteaching.org/

The Doctoral Teaching site was created following the launch of a special interest group on Developing Doctoral Students Teaching Capabilities at the 2014 Quality in Postgraduate Research (QPR) Conference in Adelaide, Australia.

The group is chaired by Associate Professor Abby Cathcart (Queensland University of Technology) and Dr Elizabeth Beckmann (Australian National University).
