ECR Day: Workshops
Session 1: Delegate-run workshops

This session is intended to provide delegates attending the ECR Day  the opportunity to share information with and hear from fellow attendees. All delegates are invited and encouraged to submit proposals for a 60 minute workshop. We have made up to 3 spaces available for delegate-run workshops, with the main focus being how we might enhance a communicative focus in our research, both theoretically and methodologically.  You may also wish to submit a proposal that addresses another topic.

For more information about Workshop submissions– use the following link: Workshop Submissions Invitation

Session 2: Panel discussion

This session involves a panel discussion on what life can look like beyond postgraduate study/ research.

Session 3: Practical Workshops

These workshops will offer delegates the opportunity to either:

  1. Take part in a round table discussion about individual research topics to create connections among attendees. Advice will also be given as to ways to communicate your work both orally and textually for a variety of audiences. This workshop will be facilitated by Professor Terry Flew from the Queensland University of Technology.
  2. Receive tips about writing and gain feedback on their own pieces. This workshop will be facilitated by Assistant Professor Kirstie McAllum from the University of Montreal.
  3. Practice their conference presentations and receive feedback. This workshop will be facilitated by Dr Mary Simpson from the University of Waikato.
