2020 Research Writers Workshops
SCD & ACT Faculty Workshop
Research Writers Workshops, organised by the Graduate Research School, seek to promote quality research within the Sydney College of Divinity (SCD). These workshops offer SCD faculty members the opportunity to turn their good ideas into publishable outputs targeting quality international journals.
In 2020 the two workshops included our colleagues in the Australian College of Theology (ACT) with equal participation from SCD and ACT faculty. The first workshop was held online on 27-28 August 2020.
Participants will be mentored by two/three internationally recognised scholars who will assist the faculty in building up their ideas, shaping them into a research paper, and submitting this paper to a quality journal. This exercise will be in the company of other faculty members such as yourself seeking the same goal. The workshop is limited to eight participants together with the two/three senior researchers.
Participation for faculty will be on the basis of a submitted 500 words research proposal. If the workshop is oversubscribed candidates will be chosen on a selective basis. Interested applicants are required to submit an online application with the research proposal by Thursday, 15 October 2020. The research proposal should outline the idea the participant would like to work on and the approach the individual will take. Participation will be on the basis of your research proposal and you will be informed of the decision by Monday, 19 October 2020.
It was intended to be a residential workshop however, with the ongoing pandemic this could be an online workshop. Cost of participation is nil.
