September the 23rd. All day, 4 sessions, no parallel sessions, 3 data sessions, 1 reading/discussion session.
AIEMCA data symposium.
I am excited to announce the upcomming data symposium, facilitated through the TAG group in Brisbane, with thanks to QUT for hosting, and academics and students from Griffith Uni, UQ, and USQ as members of the TAG community.
This event is being designed to open the space for data sessions within and across AIEMCA. The purpose is to hold a series of 3 data sessions, and to make those data sessions available to multiple participants in multiple locations. If successful, AIEMCA data symposia will become a mainstay for the communities involved.
The event will be held at QUT Kelvin Grove as a base of operations, but Zoom meetings will be used to facilitate multiple users over multiple sites. It is hoped that University and private sites will collectively ‘group chat’ to facilitate the data sessions. Moderators and scribes are needed for each site that comes onboard.
If there are any University sites able to book conference style rooms, for multiple participants, please contact Nathaniel Mitchell (email@example.com). We
The 3 data sessions are planned to each be 1.5 hrs (1hr for collaborative discussions, 30 mins for sharing between sites). Hopefully, a scribe for each site will email the duscussion notes to Nathaniel for later disemination.
Additionally, Rod Gardener would like to hold a reading discussion (based on the recent Discourse and Society special edition critically investigating the epistemic approach). Please acquire these publications through your normal sources (your library or subscription platform).
The symposium is open for PhD and undergraduate students. It is hoped that some discussion could be facilitated at the different Uni sites (to be organised) and that some discussion (within logistic limits) can be conducted between sites.
This data Symposium will also urge people to attend the AIEMCA conference in Melbourne in Nov-Dec 2016. Hope to meet you all there
