Research Week 2017 – Thank You for Attending!

Recapping Research Week 2017

All of us at UTS Library would like to thank those who contributed to this year’s Research Week making it our highest attended research event of the year. To start the academic year with the right tools and motivation, researchers from all levels gathered for five days of workshops, panel discussions, tours and interactive activities presented by professionals from across the university including the Graduate Research School, eResearch, Research & Innovation Office, Planning & Quality Unit, Intersect, UTS Careers, UTS Counselling and HELPS.

Over 700 attendees participated in workshops covering popular topics such as statistical thinking, literature reviews and tips on getting published. A whole day on self-care essentials along with an interactive data visualisation activity coordinated by Associate Professor Theresa Anderson emphasised mindfulness, stress management and the importance of adding playfulness into your work plan. Attendees also enjoyed private sessions with a professional photographer to have headshots taken to utilise in their online researcher profiles

UTS Library also announced its launch of HeadsUp:Researchers; online modules with videos, simulations, guided workbooks and more to get researchers started and stay organised.

Networking opportunities were offered throughout the week to encourage engagement between researchers as well as with academics, Library staff and staff from research support units across UTS.
