Target Audience: Postgraduate Research Students
Participants will learn about the latest thinking behind Interdisciplinary Collaborate Research (ICR), followed by an introduction to some useful frameworks to aid practical engagements in this form of research.
Despite the wide recognition of benefits and increasing demand for Interdisciplinary Collaborative Research (ICR) this remains a tricky business when it comes to practice. This 3-day course will provide an overview of the latest thinking of ICR followed by introduction of some useful frameworks to aid practical engagements in this form of research. The class is intended to be highly interactive and reflective, and to utilise the different disciplines of participants as part of the learning process.
This three-day workshop aims to better prepare participants to engage in ICR.
By the end of the workshop participants will:
- Have a broad understanding of the key concepts and different modes of ICR
- Have an overview of the key drivers and barriers to ICR and their impact on the dynamics and processes underlying this form of collaboration
- Understand reflective learning frameworks and techniques to enhance their own future learning associated with ICR
- Have an exploration of participants learning, leading to development of better collaborative practices and the ability to adapt the skills to a particular project.
