Fifty people participated in CMHDARN Higher Degree Research Kick-Start on 20 Nov at UTS. The aim of the day was to begin conversations about how to get started in research.
A panel of experts talked about knowing when it’s time to go down the research path, provided a how to-guide to finding the best supervision, and discussed grand ideas, possible pitfalls and creative solutions, as well as the possibilities of mixed-method research, and the excitement of contributing to better practice.
