    Has your research been disrupted by Covid restrictions? Are you interested in finding out more about non-empirical research methods?

    Following on from the first discussion on non-empirical, philosophical methods with Fazal and Sonja, we're keen to hear about your experiences - what disruptions is Covid-19 causing for your research, and what issues and concerns are arising for you?

    This session will be an informal sharing and discussion on which we will base future support, directions, and activities for yourself and other researchers at MGSE.

    Multiple faces of leadership: a focus on aspirant female leaders

    Date: Monday 28 September
    Time: 10am – 11am

    Register your interest

    Leadership is about impact and influence. What image do we attach to this concept – is it male, female; formal, informal; power over, to, with? Greater diversity in leadership and decision-making roles can contribute to positive outcomes for organisations and communities. The stimulus for this seminar is an article written by Watterston and Kise (2019) emphasising a ‘multiple faces of leadership’ perspective. Through a reflection of archetypes, not stereotypes, this session will explore how using a both/and approach to leadership for all genders has implications for talent identification and development. Barb will share examples of research and professional learning that provide opportunities for women to address external and self-imposed barriers and assumptions, to explore their strengths, and to define their own leadership identity.

    Presented by Dr Barbara Watterston, hosted by Dr Daniela Acquaro.

  • Reminder: Grant Camps

    Dates and times for individual sessions can be found below. The Zoom link is the same for each session as well as the password which is 058718.

    Join via Zoom

    Grant Camps provide concentrated times to draft a small part of your application and ask questions about specific parts of the application. The format for each Grant Camp is the same: a single overhead encapsulating the key points; five minutes of instructions; 25 minutes of writing; five minutes for questions; and then another 25 minutes of writing. 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 you started on each section of the application in a timely manner.

    The sessions will run as follows:

    myProposals and Projects is a new resource available in ServiceNow designed with researchers, for researchers that provides the status of all proposals and projects including a ‘To Do’ list of tasks in one easy-to-use interface.

    Currently, there is limited visibility across the research lifecycle enabling researchers to view the status of their proposal, approval workflow, project budget and deliverables.

    This resource will provide a consolidated view of research proposals and projects, links to project finances in InfoHub and actionable items from existing research systems including Themis, Minerva Elements and Infonetica ERM into one interface.

    Business Services will be holding lunch and learn sessions that will provide an overview of the new resource and answer any questions you may have. Register for a session below and bring your lunch to learn more.
