The program was developed and is run by Professor Ron Adams, who has continuously supervised PhD and Masters students for the past twenty five years, and over the last fifteen years has worked with hundreds of other research students at many Australian and overseas universities who have participated in his Demystifying the Thesis program. In 2004 Ron was awarded the Victoria University Vice-Chancellor’s Medal for Excellence in Research Supervision, and was winner of the 2010 Australian Learning and Teaching Council’s Program Award for Postgraduate Education.
