CPOW-CRIMT Partnership Workshop II: Concept, Cases, Impact.

01 May 2019

RMIT University
Swanston Academic Building (Building 80)
445 Swanston Street, Melbourne
01 MAY 19

This workshop comprises part of the flagship CRIMT Institutional Experimentation for Better Work Partnership Project, funded by a SSHRC grant (Canada) and managed from Montreal (HEC – Hautes études commerciales de Montréal and Université de Montréal).

The second CPOW-CRIMT Workshop for 2019: ‘Concepts, Cases, Impact’, will build on the momentum established during our first workshop in February. The purpose of the first workshop was to explore how researchers can play an active part in the International Partnership, which comprises 18 research centres worldwide. In this follow up, we move to examine more deeply the key project elements: what do we mean by concepts such as ‘experimentation’ or ‘better work’? What does a case study look like and how might my work contribute? How does the Better Work project contribute to my strategic goals as an academic researcher around publications, engagement, knowledge translation and impact?

‘Concepts, Cases, Impact’ begins to unpack these ideas and practicalities in a collaborative and dialogic format. Join us on the 1st of May for this three-hour workshop, divided into three focussed sessions:

  • 9.30am-10.30am – ‘Finding yourself in the partnership’: overview of where we are in the project structure, upcoming milestone events, and how individual researchers can place themselves within the project and leverage what it has to offer.
  • 10.30am-11.30am – ‘Unpacking cases’: join our panellists to discuss their current research projects, as we work together to help them place their work within the Better Work project, frame it as a CRIMT ‘case study’, and plan strategically to create outputs and impact
  • 11.30am-12.30pm – ‘Conceptual and practical challenges’: come together with colleagues in the final session to deliberate around and clarify the terms, concepts and practical hurdles that emerge during our discussion of cases.

Interested researchers who are new to the CRIMT Partnership and the Better Work project are encouraged to attend. For more information on the project, please contact Prof Peter Fairbrother or Dr Kate Farhall, or visit the relevant page on the CPOW Website.
