Graduate School workshops in March

March hareMarch (and spring!) isn’t far away, so here is a quick rundown of the Graduate School workshops happening next month. Q Methodology is a research method used to study people’s “subjectivity” (their viewpoint) and Roshni Khatri will be running an introductory workshop to Q Methodology.

Personal Effectiveness Day focuses on negotiation, conflict handling skills, with strategies to handle the doctoral ‘roller coaster’. Quantitative Data Analysis 1 covers basic data analysis and variability and Dr Miggie Pickton and Nick Dimmock look at Open Access and the implications for your research.
