  • ARC Grant Camp Series

    The ARC Grant Camp series offers ARC applicants the opportunity to work on the background section of their application in a supportive environment. Led by Veronica Loew and Jonathan O’Donnell (Faculty of Science), each session provides concentrated time to draft a small part of your application and ask questions about specific parts of the application. The aim is not to produce polished prose, but to get words on paper that can be discussed with a mentor. It is designed to get people started on each section of the application in a timely manner.

    Each session is run the same way, with a single overhead encapsulating the key points:

    • 5 minutes of instructions
    • 20 minutes of writing
    • 5 minutes for questions
    • another 20 minutes of writing.

    Although designed for Discovery Project and Discovery Indigenous applicants, it is open to any ARC applicants. Each session in the series is detailed in the table below. Please note the zoom join link is the same for each session.

    Join all via Zoom

  • Digital Methods for Research Led T&L Practices in the Covid New Normal

    Date: Monday 14 December
    Time: 1pm – 4.30pm

    Register your interest

    In 2020, COVID-19 forced most of our teaching and research online. Our work practices have shifted, and we have needed to embrace digital tools. But can the shift online be leveraged to understand and enhance how we work? This workshop will explore what data we create through the use of digital tools, how it can be analysed, and the kinds of research that can be produced. Additionally, it will explore how these methods can be used to enhance our research-led teaching practices. The workshop will be facilitated by the #DataCreativities collaboration: a diverse research team exploring the fast-paced shift to making, living, and learning in the creative industries during times of isolation. This diversity will help facilitate a workshop that provides you with a practical and approachable set of tools that you can apply to your own research-led teaching practices.
