Work in Progress Seminars

Purpose

The broad purpose of the Research Work in Progress (WIP) seminars is to support and mentor staff in their research activities as part of the coordinated research efforts of the College.

Specific aims of the WIP seminars are to:

  1. Foster a research community through regular discussion of internal and external research activities;
  2. Foster collaborative research, including inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary research, through discussion of internal and external research activities;
  3. Provide feedback from diverse academic perspectives on staff research outputs at critical times in the research process (initial ideas, formulating specific research questions or hypotheses, finalising methodology, data analysis, written or verbal research reporting);
  4. Facilitate dissemination of internal research outputs to the 橘色直播 community and the wider academic community.
Dates and Times of Seminars

Seminars are usually held on the first Tuesday of each month, excluding December, January & February. The exact dates depend on staff availability. Meetings are held between 12pm and 1pm.

Format of Seminars

Formats include research workshops and seminars, writing workshops, and conference practice sessions. In workshops staff or invited external researchers briefly present some work in progress and invite discussion. In seminars an invited speaker presents research findings or discusses a research issue in a more extended presentation, but with at least 20 minutes of open discussion. Writing workshops are devoted to reading and providing feedback to works in progress in pairs or small groups.听 Conference practice sessions include the presentation of a paper prepared for a forthcoming conference plus discussion of the content and mode of presentation.

Supervision Workshops

Supervision workshops address topics related to best practice in the supervision of HDR candidates. They form part of the ongoing professional development of staff engaged in HDR supervision.

Writing Retreat

Objectives of the three-day writing retreat are to write part or all of a research paper; learn about and share useful information about writing and publishing; and develop research collaborations in areas of mutual interest.

Symposia

Research symposia provide opportunities for a number of presentations on related topics by invited speakers. Open symposia include staff and international experts as speakers; HDR symposia feature the research of HDR candidates.
