MGSE Research Forums 2021

Reimagining Research Futures @ MGSE

Date: Thursday 22 April
Time: 11am – 12.30pm


In 2021, we are planning to conduct a series of four research forums that bring together MGSE academics to consider new and emerging research agendas that address the pressing issues for education.  There is currently a breadth of research activity at MGSE that is high quality, innovative and translational. The forum discussions are not designed to replace current research or identify priority areas for research, but rather to discuss new possibilities in reimagining research futures at MGSE.

The question to be discussed at the first forum is:

What are the new emerging research agendas that MGSE needs to be responding to?

There are many different answers to this question. To prompt discussions the format of the first forum will be as follows:

  • A panel of four academics will present a five-minute provocation around new emerging research agendas.
  • Julie McLeod will provide a ten-minute response
  • Breakout groups to discuss emerging research agendas (30 minutes)
  • Bring everyone together and discuss (30 minutes).
