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 of 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 One 2017, modules in the series Working with theory in social research will take place on March 22, May 16 and May 30. The first of two modules for the semester in the series The research higher degree and beyond is scheduled for May 24; the second for June 7. The series Qualitative and quantitative research methods will cover three topics during Semester One, beginning on March 29 and concluding on May 17.

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.
