9th Feb 2022 Supervisory relationships: working with different personality and communication styles
Supervision relationships are one of the most important forms of support that research candidates receive. When they're strong, the trust and respect that develops between student and supervisor/s facilitates honest dialogue and feedback, rich intellectual engagement, positive career development and lasting mentoring relationships. However, when they function poorly or breakdown, they can become a major source of stress for both parties and leave students feeling particularly isolated and vulnerable.Focusing on the role of communication skills, boundaries, voice and authority play in this space, the session for Supervisors discusses how to establish and maintain supervision relationships that are honest, comfortable and professionally nourishing for both parties. Drawing on the practices of mindful speech and listening, we explore your experiences of supervision and workshop solutions to any issues of concern.(1.5hrs, 0930-1100 AEST)Presenter - Shari Walsh, Resilient Researcher

23rd Feb 2022 Rebooting our reading, note-taking and writing practices: from default to purpose-driven
We learned to read and write in school! Yes, but reading and writing in research are a different matter altogether. Despite being so crucial, reading is commonly shaped by default practices that often do not meet our needs, especially given the time pressures we face. Does your pile of things to read keep growing, no matter how much you’ve read? Might your reading be governed by fear of missing out? Are the notes you are taking as useful and insightful as they could be? Are you struggling with writing? You will learn about common defaults in reading and note-taking, and learn a range of alternative strategies to try out within the workshop, focusing on literature that is relevant to your own work. Time spent reading things in detail that turn out not to be so useful is time you can’t get back. This workshop promotes extractive reading that leaves you time to go in depth when you need to. We will also explore strategies for writing: how to assault the blank page through a range of techniques.  Preparation for this workshop.(3 hours, 1000-1300 AEST)Presenter - Nick Hopwood. University of Technology Sydney.

2nd Mar 2022 Staying focused: How to train concentration and manage distractions
What is the quality of your attention when you work? How often do you get distracted? And how sustainable and productive is your working routine? This masterclass from Michelle Jamieson addresses the issue of focus: knowing where your attention is and keeping it where you want it to be.  We examine the mental states and behavioural habits that undermine concentration and clear thinking and explore evidence-based mindfulness practices that assist in cultivating a mind that is sharp, attentive and interested.Together, we’ll look closely at some of the common problems writers encounter - including inattention, procrastination, and mental busyness - and learn practical strategies for how to meet these obstacles with intelligence and care.(2.5 hrs, 1230-1500 AEST)Limited to 25 participants.Presenter - Michelle Jamieson

If you don't yet have coded data this workshop will give you insight into what is possible when you reach that stage.As this workshop moves you beyond basic coding with a range of queries to help identify patterns in data, if you are new to NVivo and as a prerequisite to this session, you are required to go through some pre-materials, a link to these is contained in the registration.3 hours, 1000-1300 AESTLimited to 15 participants.Presenter: Dr Jenine Beekhuyzen, Adroit Research
9th Mar 2022 Learning to balance self-discipline with self-kindness
This workshop focuses on how you relate to your work and yourself, especially in regards to practices of self-discipline and self-kindness. As high achievers, researchers typically work hard and expect a lot of themselves. While having a strong work ethic and high expectations can motivate us to reach our goals, they can also be hindering if we're inflexible, unrealistic, or push too hard in the face of difficulties. When self-discipline is not tempered with self-kindness, it often leads to unhelpful habits - such as self criticism, comparison, perfectionism and overwork - which diminish our productivity and ability to enjoy our research.How do you treat yourself, and speak to yourself, when you work. How do you react to criticism and praise? And what feelings dominate your experience of doing research - tension, stress, ease, engagement, interest? Together, we discuss some of the common difficulties that  contribute to imbalance among high achievers, and explore strategies for cultivating self-compassion, mental rest and greater pleasure in one's work.1230-1500 AESTLimited to 25 participants.Presenter - Michelle Jamieson

7th Apr 2022 Critical stances in relation to data – how not to take your data for granted
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. Participants will work with examples of real data, before focusing on their own data in order to discover what it is really and most powerfully evidence of.  Preparation for the session.(3 hrs, 1000-1300 AEST)Presenter by - Nick Hopwood, University of Technology Sydney.
