Below are the dates of departmental seminars or sessions that may be of interest to PhD students:
Work in Progress Conference 2016
Date: 29th June 2016
A conference for PhD students! Usual format is a workshop lead by an external speaker in the morning, followed by an afternoon session of student presentations. Lunch is provided, and further details will be updated as they are released. It’s an event not to be missed.
Departmental Seminar Series – Time: 12.30-2.00 p.m.
Seminars hosted by the department, often by visiting speakers, a great way to find out what’s currently going on in an area outside your own field of research.
See here for further details and more upcoming seminars occurring across the faculty. Many of the departmental seminars are recorded, so even if you can’t attend in person you can catch up with them here.
The online reading group discusses research journal articles on topics of interest to educational researchers. Meetings begin with general comments and questions on the paper, which are followed with more detailed critiques on insights in the paper, application of methodology, strength of the arguments, etc.
We use WebEx software which some of you may already be familiar with. If you would like to participate in one of the forthcoming meetings please send Rebecca an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If an informal chat is what you’re looking for then come along [either in person or join at a distance] to the departmental discussion group meetings. Upcoming dates are: Thursday 14th Jan 2016; Monday 15th Feb; Thursday 17th March. If you’re a distance learner and would like to join then please let Jo Dickinson (email@example.com) know.
A monthly writing day (9am – 5pm), led by Anne-Marie Houghton, also goes on every month. Again participation can be in person or at a distance. Sessions involve setting your own goal and then reflecting on your progress and reflecting on next steps. For more details contact Anne-Marie.
