4th Aug 2021 The Strategic Researcher
Hugh Kearns is presenting this workshop for Researchers, Research Teams, Collaborators and Supervisors.Are you wanting to get a grant, but not sure how to approach it strategically? Or despite getting the grant and getting the research done, do you find it hard to achieve the publication outputs? And if you do publish, how strategic are you about it –do you just do the next paper on the list or do you think about which one will help with your next grant or be read by more people or have greatest impact? Then in relation to the team you work in, are you being as productive as possible, for example using all team members or colleagues in a way that increases your publication output and theirs? And finally, do you use your limited resources (eg statisticians, senior researchers, editors etc) in the most effective way possible?This workshop will look at:- managing your time in a busy research environment- publishing strategically- linking publications to grants- using the team (or others) to increase publication productivity- keeping track of publications to increase motivation and accountability- managing your publication “resources” for maximum output- attributes of a successful (and highly productive) research leader/team.(2hrs, 1400-1600 AEST)

Expect to interview, be interviewed, and to alert to the use of effective probes.

13th Sep 2021 Working with theory in qualitative data analysis (Workshop 3)
Understanding a theory is one thing. Being able to use it well in the process of qualitative analysis is quite another! How do we avoid the common pitfall of circular findings (we find what the theory told us we would find), or the limited outcome of painting by numbers (finding examples of concepts in our data)? This workshop will focus on a framework that participants can use to discover how others have been successful, and to apply in their own work. In preparation for the workshop Choose an article or chapter where you think theory has been used well in qualitative data analysis. It should involve some quotation from raw data (interviews, documents, observation notes etc).(2 hrs, 1000 - 1200 AEST)Presented by - Associate Professor Nick Hopwood, University of Technology Sydney.  Nick based at the University of Technology Sydney.

14th Sep 2021 Critical stances in relation to data – how not to take your data for granted (Workshop 4)
In qualitative analysis it is important not to take your data for granted, not to assume its surface meanings are the only meanings, or even the most appropriate ones to work with. In this workshop we will share principles and analytical questions that you can use to take a sophisticated approach to data. While taking a critical and reflective stance to your data is good for intellectual hygiene and methodological rigour, it can also be unsettling and destabilising. In this workshop we will look at examples of documentary and interview data where surface meanings need to be troubled, applying specific techniques to uncover important features and meanings.(2 hrs, 1000 - 1200 AEST)  This is a direct link to the session, please add it to your outlook calendar.Presented by - Associate Professor Nick Hopwood, University of Technology Sydney.  Nick based at the University of Technology Sydney.
