26th Oct 2021 Reap the Benefits of Peer Review
Peer reviewing research papers is something that many researchers shy away from – perhaps due to perceived lack of expertise, lack of time, or belief that it’s work that brings little value to the peer reviewer.

Moreover, it can bring a number benefits to researchers.This session will give you an overview of how to confidently and time-effectively undertake peer review of research papers. Topics covered are listed below.The potential benefits you can gain from peer review – with real-world examplesWhy you only need to have led the writing and response to reviewers for one research paper to be able to start accepting peer review assignmentsCommon mistakes to avoid when undertaking peer review of research papersHow to get more invitations to undertake peer review of research papersIdeas on how to undertake a thorough and fair peer reviewHow to set up automations to reduce the amount of time it takes you to undertake peer review assignmentsYour questions answered live (questions will be concentrated mostly into the last 15 to 20 minutes of the training)The workshop is for both supervisors and students and is facilitated by Prof Amanda Salis (Salis Institute).  (90 mins, WA time)

7th Dec 2021 NVivo
As a prerequisite to this session, you are required to review some materials. You will find the link in the registration questions.  This workshop will then move you beyond basic coding with a range of queries to help identify patterns in data. Queries are powerful and assist the researcher to move beyond basic coding to use their classifications to produce visualisations. Reports are also covered.We work with a sample dataset, however you are encouraged to work with your own coded dataset if desired (literature or empirical data). It is OK if you don't have coded data as the workshop gives insight into what is possible when you reach that stage.This workshop is limited to 15 participants and is facilitated by Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen of Adroit Research, please email her with any questions - info@adroitresearch.com.au with the subject line: CSU workshop.  (3 hours, 1000-1300 AEST)
