Research training modules

In collaboration with the Office of Research, the Office of Doctoral Studies is offering a range of modules and workshop programs that seek to promote a vibrant research culture in the faculty and across the division, by engaging established and emerging researchers to talk about how they go about their own work with a focus on how they conceptualise and enact the research process.

With the exception of Handling data with NVivo, each module consists of 4–6 lectures that relate to the central topic but are easily understood individually. Modules will be offerred to higher-degree-research students in Semester Two, 2014 and Semester One, 2015.

Talks in the module Challenging methods, methodological challenges will take place between August 21 and November 6. The first talk in the module Research for making the familiar strange and the strange familiar is scheduled for September 11; the final one for November 13.

The module Designing quantitative research will comprise four presentations over two Mondays, a fortnight apart (November 3 and 17).

Conversations between supervisors and higher-degree-research students comprises two talks on consecutive Mondays in October (20 and 27).

The opening module of 2015 will be Research practice to change the world. Sessions will be weekly from February 26, from 4–5pm except for the session on March 12, which will be from 5–6pm. Bookmark this page to be kept up to date with additional modules.
