Research training modules

In collaboration with the Sydney School of Education and Social Work Research Office, the Office of Doctoral Studies is offers a range of modules and workshops that seek to promote a vibrant research culture in the school and across the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, 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 exists within a series that relates to a central topic. However, except where specified in the module description, each can be understood easily in isolation. Modules are free for higher-degree-research students.

In Semester Two 2017, modules in the series Qualitative and quantitative research methods will take place on August 24, August 31, September 7, September 14, September 21 and October 11. The first of two modules in the series Working with theory in social research is scheduled for October 4; the second for October 25. The topic of The research higher degree and beyond will be the addressed in the module "Inside the ‘black box’ of academic publishing (AKA ‘How do I get in?)", on October 18.

Links to the details of individual talks will be published under the page for the relevant module, listed as submenus on the left of this page and in School events section of the website.
