We introduce the concept of a research workflow, a series of defined steps that will assist you in thinking about your data and preparing it for statistical analysis. We introduce you to the resources available from both Sydney Informatics Hub and across the University that will support you in proceeding from hypothesis generation all the way through to publication. Data analysis concepts will be covered in detail, including: how experimental design fits into hypothesis generation and your final publication; how to manage your analysis data and Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) - an essential and often-overlooked stage of data analysis for determining the appropriate statistical methods to apply in your research. We will show you some of the more advanced statistical analysis methods to give you and idea of what is possible. Note that this workshop does not require knowledge of or use of specific statistics software. The analysis methods may be performed using a range of commonly available software through the university. **Attendance options:** **In person:** Choose the **_In person_** ticket option.

    27 - 30 March 2023

    Writing up a Qualitative PhD https://dresa.org.au/events/writing-up-a-qualitative-phd Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly. This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you. Among the topics covered are: * The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles 2023-03-27 19:00:00 UTC 2023-03-30 21:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative Researchqualitative dataQualitative PhDWriting up a PhD

Often it is messy. Sometimes it is incomplete. And sometimes there's too much of it. Frequently, it has errors. We'll use one of the most widespread data wrangling tools, Microsoft Excel, to import, sort, filter, copy, protect, transform, summarise, merge, and visualise research data. While aimed at novice Excel users, most attendees will walk away with new tricks to work more efficiently with their research data. #### You'll learn: - 'Clean up’ messy research data - Organise, format and name your data - Interpret your data (SORTING, FILTERING, CONDITIONAL FORMATTING) - Perform calculations on your data using functions (MAX, MIN, AVERAGE) - Extract significant findings from your data (PIVOT TABLE, VLOOKUP) - Manipulate your data (convert data format, work with DATES and TIMES) - Create graphs and charts to visualise your data (CHARTS) - Handy tips to speed up your work #### Prerequisites: In order to participate, attendees must have a licensed copy of Microsoft Excel installed on their computer. Speak to your local university IT or Research Office for assistance in obtaining a license and installing the software. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/excel101).** 2023-03-08 09:30:00 UTC 2023-03-09 12:30:00 UTC Intersect Australia Australia Australia ACU training@intersect.org.au [] [] [] host_institution []

  • Writing up a Qualitative PhD

    27 - 30 March 2023

    Writing up a Qualitative PhD https://dresa.org.au/events/writing-up-a-qualitative-phd Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly. This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you. Among the topics covered are: * The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles 2023-03-27 19:00:00 UTC 2023-03-30 21:30:00 UTC ACSPRI online, online, Australia online online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Qualitative Researchqualitative dataQualitative PhDWriting up a PhD
