2015 Higher degree workshop

Agents of Change - A knowledge exchange mindset for emerging researchers

Thursday 30 July 2015, Adelaide Convention Centre

This workshop was for higher degree research students who wanted their research to have an impact beyond publication. Following the success of the inaugural Workshop in 2014, this workshop introduced a philosophy of knowledge exchange (KE). It encouraged researchers to cultivate an outward facing perspective; build professional relationships across all sectors and work with research users to inform and strengthen their research directions. Through discussion, sharing and networking with peers, the workshop further presented a selection of tools, tactics and resources for generating relevant and timely research to inform policy and practice.

KE is a way of thinking that is useful wherever you work. Working with your allies; seeing their perspectives - consumer, policy or practice - can only add value to your research.
