Engaging Coursework Masters Students in Research: An event for Victoria & Tasmania, hosted by Monash University

Are your Coursework Masters students alienated by substantial research requirements of the program because they do not yet have the skills and knowledge required?
Do they think that research belongs on another planet?
Are you facing problems with enabling Masters students to engage rigorously with research experiences?

Then register for Engaging Coursework Masters Students in Research (Victoria & Tasmania), Wednesday 26 November, where we will use the research Skill Development framework (RSD) as the conceptual launchpad for discussions and for developing resources that fit your context.

Register via this link:https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7YXJXV9

The program for the day is:
Session 1 (9.00-10.00 am): Research skills relevant for Masters students
Session 2 (10.00-10.45 am): Participants’ experiences, current structures, examples
Session 3 (11.15-12.00 am): Planning an overview of your Masters program with RSD
Session 4 (12.00-1.00 pm): Planning individual courses with RSD
Session 5 (2.00-3.15 pm): Giving Masters students the vibe for engaging in research
Session 6 (3.15-4.00 pm): Planning the continuance of the Victorian cluster

  1. Thanks Sylvia- should be fun, especially with the motivations and drivers of research- ‘the vibe’- after lunch!

    BTW- your team has been very active on your Uni Wisconsin-Stout Research Skill Development Cohort blog- I only just saw all the recent posts and I am commenting at the moment. Looks like you are really moving along. Love the post and comments on how to best introduce research/research skills.
