The RMIT Science, Health and Engineering Educational Research Centre (SHEER) newsletter has a wealth of information related to L&T research and innovation. SHEER Centre News – Issue 12

SHEER is running two workshops in May and June to which SoE staff have been kindly invited.

May 16, 8.30 – 10.00 am,12.12.32 City Campus        Grant ideation
The aim of the meeting is to form small groups to work together on new projects for current research grant rounds. This meeting will consider funding from the National Centre for Equity in Higher Education (up to $360k), IELTS (up to $70k), UK Society for Research in Higher Education (up to $30k) and US Global Innovation Fund (up to USD230k). Attendees will pre-select the grant they would like to apply for, then work in small groups on a joint project proposal. At the end of the meeting each group will have a draft project scope, research questions, and methods. An elected group leader will organise follow up activities.

If you are interested in attending (and apologies for the late notice), email for the pre-work and appointment.

June 9,9.30 to 11:30 in 14.12.5, City Campus          Writing for publication on L&T 
This workshop has been developed by Dr Cate Gribble, SHEER Centre Snr Research Fellow with Dr Charlotte Brack, Academic Developer, RMIT Learning and Teaching Academy. This workshop is both for those who have already started down the path of education research in their discipline, with papers in progress, and for those who need guidance about how to start down this path. The workshop will run two streams to cater for the different groups. The workshop will address the challenge of bridging theory, research and classroom practice.
