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 a series of lectures that relate to the central topic. However, each can be understood easily in isolation. Modules will be offerred free to higher-degree-research students.

In Semester Two 2016, talks in the module Working with theory in social research will take place on August 23 and September 13. The first of two talks for the semester in the module The research higher degree and beyond is scheduled for August 9; the second for October 11. The module Qualitative and quantitative research methods will cover six topics during Semester Two, beginning on August 16 and concluding on October 5.

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 Faculty Events section of the website.
