Professor Robin Daly & Professor Terry Haines
This concurrent session provides research higher degree students with an opportunity to present their work in a supportive and positive environment in order to network, gain feedback and gain skills in public speaking and presentation of research projects. Doctoral, masters and honours research projects are a vehicle for research training and research translation. We suggest helpful tips and tricks and strategies to survive and thrive in higher degree studies and beyond. We focus particularly on the importance of knowledge generation, thinking time, time-management, planning and getting the most out of the supervisory team. Making the research journey enjoyable and low stress is promoted, as well as successfully transitioning to post-doctoral roles.
