PhD proposal development workshops

The next two workshops are scheduled for Monday November 23rd 2009 GradCAM Seminar Room, John’s Street andTuesday December 8th 2009 Media Cube, IADT (designed for IADT personnel specifically).

These workshops are designed to support researchers in the PhD proposal development stage. The workshops typically consist of a one-day intensive programme consisting of lecture; criticism and analysis seminar; sample proposal evaluation and analysis; and technical writing session. The workshop is then followed up by a one-to-one 45 minute session based on a detailed discussion of the individual research proposal with members of the Graduate School team.

If you would like to participate in a workshop, simply email an expression of interest to aidan.mcelwaine(at)gradcam.ieincluding:

(a) a copy of your CV;

(b) a first draft of your research proposal; and

(c) an indication of why the general area of your proposed research is relevant to the goals and remit of the Graduate School.

To help make a first draft proposal see this Australian website that provides helpful and succinct advice on research proposal writing. However, the basic issues a proposal should address can be stated simply as:
(i) what is the enquiry about? what is it that we want to find out?
(ii) why is this worth doing? what has been done in this area before? what’s new about this enquiry?
(iii) how will we go about making our enquiry? where do we start? what is the sequence of steps in trying to arrive at an answer?
(iv) who would I like to work with? or what disciplines would I like to draw upon to make this enquiry?
(v) what kinds of resources might I need?
(vi) what materials will I be reading / viewing / accessing to inform my enquiry? (bibliography)

The numbers participating in each workshop are kept small to ensure that each participant is facilitated to evolve the best possible research proposal rooted in their specific personal research interests.

Email expressions of interest to aidan.mcelwaine(at)gradcam.ie

Include the phrase “proposal workshop” in the message title.
