Led by the School of Design Research Training Coordinator (RTC) the HDR’s Write Now event is a 1-hour weekly community group dedicated to scholarly writing. This session is provided online to allow everyone to join in, wherever they may be located.
Once a month, the Research Training Coordinator (RTC) invites a School of Design HDR Supervisor to present techniques or research methodologies. This is a hybrid presentation, both on campus and online. These sessions provide the opportunity for our HDRs to get-to-know other HDR supervisors and hear about the diverse research conducted across the different disciplines in our School.
In 2021 our HDR LEARN HOW sessions were:
|Month||Guest & Topic|
|July||Dr. Levi Swann: What is coding?|
|August||Dr. Jeremy Kerr: Participatory design techniques|
|September||A/Prof. Alice Payne: From haute couture to H&S uniform design|
|October||A/Prof. Verena Thomas: Community engagement|
