All HDR candidates are required to present at seminars twice during their candidacy, the first at the point of confirmation and the second during the completion phase.
The colloquium document and presentation to the colloquium panel acts as the first formal seminar. Futher information about the process is available online.
- Completion (exit) seminar papers benefit by discussing your strategies for its preparation and presentation with your supervisor.
This exit seminar paper should generally be delivered approximately six to nine months before your date of anticpated submission.
The paper may be delivered at the annual summer school or to a school group within your discipline area.
The exit seminar paper is an occassion for highlighting your research. It is an opportunity to present key findings, the methods used to do so, and a succinct review of your central argument and its conceptual framework, ending with the contribution made to the broader field of research.
Apart from the two mandatory seminar presentations, the Faculty strongly encourages and supports candidates who also wish to present at external conferences during candidacy.
School HDR Seminar Series
Faculty and University Seminars
To further add to the HDR experience, the Faculty and the University conduct a range of other seminars on a variety of topics. You will find a listing of Faculty Seminars listed amongst other Deakin events on the University calendar of events.
There are multiple workshops and seminars facilitated by Deakin Research across all campuses. Registration for these workshops is required as places are limited. Please ensure that you notify Deakin Research if you register but find later that you are unable to attend. This opens the place to anybody who may be waiting.
Remote connection to seminars
It may be possible to connect to some of these seminars remotely, you should check with the Research Office administration staff or the seminar facilitator. To enable remote connection you will need to set up a jabber account which will allow you to connect to a Virtual Meeting Point (VMP)
