The Successful Graduate Students’ Research Supervision Pedagogy


To make up the successful graduate students' supervision, pedagogical practices are presented in this research. Upon reviewing the existing research works in the same research area, together with the tested four hypotheses for this research, the analyzed raw data was collected by a questionnaire that was answered by ninety qualified respondents. Those hypotheses are: (i) the supervisor’s expertise in the research domain has a lot to do with the successful graduate students’ research; (ii) the regular supervisory research meeting positively contributes to the successful graduate students supervision pedagogy (GSSP); (iii) the feedback on the work in progress has a positive relationship with successful GSSP; (iv) graduate students’ research supervisor’s advice and morale positively contribute to the successful graduate research students’ supervision pedagogy. On the 35 Likert-types statistically scaled queries, we used the Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis to test the relationship between variables of this study. In results, the highest correlation of 0.78 is found between the expertise of supervisors in the subject (EIS) and the regular group meeting (RGM): two of the designed statistical model's parameters. The universality of the truth might depend on the research disciplines, location, motivation, and system, but this research results in the successful graduate student supervision process that is based on regular research meeting favoring the interactive learning environments where the expertise of supervisors governs. In case of the distance learning, the supervised research work’s report is preferably done on computer-mediated communication systems; based on which, together with the intelligent tutoring systems, plagiarism will certainly be avoided.
