Event details

The ANZMAC mid-year doctoral colloquium 2018 is open to doctoral students who are at any stage of their doctoral training. In recent years, the colloquium has attracted delegates from Australia and overseas, making this a truly international colloquium. We hope that delegates will learn more about the world of research, gain valuable feedback on their theses, share research ideas and concepts, and nurture long-lasting friendships and networks among fellow delegates. We also wish for delegates to enjoy their stay in Melbourne.

A highlight of this colloquium is a practical workshop on meta-analysis. Taught by people who have published meta-analyses in prestigious journals,this hands-on half-day workshop will introduce participants to the basics of how to:

  • plan, conduct, and document a systematic search of the literature
  • extract the relevant data from the papers you find
  • convert the data you extract into the metrics required to conduct a meta-analysis
  • conduct a basic meta-analysis
  • test your data for basic problems of bias and heterogeneity
  • report your meta-analytic findings.

This doctoral colloquium will also feature presentations by leading world-class scholars on various topics including branding, consumer behaviour, marketing strategy, services marketing, and research methodology.

For more information, please contact Riza Casidy.

Professor Mike Ewing, Executive Dean, Faculty of Business and Law – Keynote Speaker

Professor Mike Ewing was appointed Pro-Vice Chancellor (Executive Dean) of Business and Law at Deakin in March 2014. Prior to that, he spent 12 years at Monash University (as professor of marketing, Head of the Department of Marketing, deputy PVC and Head of Faculty) and six years at Curtin University.

Bart de Jong, Meta-Analysis Workshop Facilitator

Bart de Jong is an Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at the Peter Faber Business School at Australian Catholic University, and an Associate Member of the Deakin Lab for the Meta-Analysis of Research (DeLMAR) in Melbourne. His research mainly focuses on trust, teams and the combination of both (team trust), and he examines these topics using primary (survey) studies and meta-analysis. His work has been published in scholarly journals such as Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP) and Organization Science, and several of his conference papers have appeared in the Academy of Management (AOM) Best Paper Proceedings. He serves on the editorial review boards of AMJ and JAP, and has received several Outstanding Reviewer awards. In 2014, he received a three-year early career grant from the Dutch Research Council to pursue his research interest into trust asymmetry in teams (equivalent to ARC's DECRA). His teaching predominantly focuses on research design and research methods at bachelor, master and PhD level. Furthermore, as Visiting Professor at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, he recently taught a PhD course on Advanced Topics in Organisational Behaviour. Bart is an active member of the Organisational Behaviour Division of the AOM Annual Meeting, and is involved in multiple committees, professional development workshops, and symposia.
