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 4–7 lectures that relate to the central topic but are easily understood individually. Modules will be offerred free to higher-degree-research students.

Talks in the module Working with theory in social research will take place between August 6 and October 22, 2015. The first talk in the module The research higher degree and beyond is scheduled for August 13; the final one for November 5.

The module Qualitative and quantitative research methods will cover four topics, beginning on September 2 and concluding on November 12. Four of the seven sessions in this module will be devoted to the topic: "A practical approach to questionnaire construction and analysis".

Links to the details of individual talks will be published here and in Faculty Events section.
