15th Jul 2020 NVivo
As prerequisite to this session you need to go through some pre-materials which will be advised closer to the date. 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.

28th Jul 2020 On-line Presentation Skills, with Hugh Kearns
In person, you may have given presentations, possibly to a class or your peers, perhaps a confirmation seminar, a mid-candidature review, or maybe even a conference presentation. However, presenting on-line is a whole different consideration..How do you continue to present effectively, when most times, you cannot see or hear your audience. You still need to engage them and gain their participation. You need to communicate skilfully and with conviction as well as maintain their attention when they have a myriad of tempting distractions.This is for anyone who has to present at a conference or give a seminar or a lecture on their area of expertise.
