Willison and Missingham to lead RSD Symposium in U. S. – December 3 &4 – Please join us!

Dr. John Willison and his colleague Dorothy Missingham are coming from Adelaide, Australia to lead UW-Stout’s Research Skills Symposium on December 3 & 4, 2015.  Interactive sessions will be led by Willison, Missingham and UW-Stout faculty who have experience integrating the RSD framework into their courses.  We are expecting to have a lot of fun in interactive sessions, discussions, student presentations, and poster sessions.  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to work with the pros who developed the RSD framework (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/) and work to apply the RSD Framework to your courses as part of sound pedagogical practices.

Please help spread the word by downloading, printing and posting the flyer RSD Symposium Flyer

    1. Hey John,
      I am sure the weather will be great for you – temps in the 60s and sunshine. OK, bring a warm coat, boots and probably mittens. You should probably plan on snow as we got our first dose of it yesterday!

  1. Hi all,

    I am a student at the University of Adelaide (UofA) who is currently tutoring first year engineering students under the guidance of John and Dorothy. In the past two years I have been heavily involved in the teaching and implementation of the RSD framework at UofA. Personally I have seen students change their methodology in approaching engineering problems as they develop their skills alongside the RSD. The RSD is a fantastic framework which teaches the core fundamentals for all engineering professionals, and I think it should be showed to the world!

    I can’t wait to hear the feedback and overall response from its introduction at the UW-Stout’s Research Skills Symposium.

    1. Hi Petros
      Your work, along with the other tutors has been inspiring. This includes: the re-engineering of the RSD to ‘speak engineer’- as the Optimising Problem Solving (OPS) framework (see this here http://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/smallgroup/examples/ecms/ ) that Dorothy (below) is presenting to Uni Wisconsin (Stout). Also, the work on the ground- see Petros in tutoring action with the First year mech Eng students http://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/smallgroup/examples/ecms/overview/ .

  2. Now that a very busy semester is drawing to a close I am getting excited about joining the Symposium on Student Research Skills at UW-Stout. Looking forward to meeting other educators and hearing how you all approach L&T around helping students develop their research skills, how you integrate the RSD and how the students respond.
