Masterclass – Integrating theory, methods and empirical data with Paula McDonald

Join us for a professional development collaboration with the Australian Centre for Health Law Research as part of their Research Training and Professional Development Series 2023.

Integrating theory, methods and empirical data masterclass
Drawing on 15 years of research in the field of workplace sexual harassment, Paula will present pragmatic examples of how theory from various socio-legal and social science perspectives can be integrated with different empirical data sets and methodological strategies. The aim of the masterclass is to illustrate how to build a critical mass of published evidence in a way that demonstrates academic expertise on a given topic, leads to authentic engagement with end-users, and underpins research impact.

This session will be of value to researchers at all career stages interested in scholarly approaches to, and practical examples of, innovative research design. HDR students are also encouraged to attend.

Paula McDonald is Professor of Work and Organisation and Associate Dean, Research in the QUT Faculty of Business and Law. She is also visiting Professor at Queen Mary University London. Paula has worked closely with organisations in the public, private and community sectors on collaborative research which advances social justice in and beyond the workplace.
