HDR Pre-Forum Workshop 2023
Friday 4th August 2023
WAIER is proud to present our third HDR pre-Forum workshop. Designed to connect our educational research candidates across all Western Australian tertiary institutions this two-hour workshop delivered in two parts, is an opportunity to connect, share and be inspired.
Part 1 will look at publishing in the Conversation and other media engagement as an education researcher i.e. radio interviews, articles in newspapers to improve reach and impact of your work. This will be followed by a panel discussion focused on innovative and progressive research methods.
Part 2 will see participants sharing their research (be prepared to talk about your research for approx. 5 minutes). The aim is to network, create cross-institution communities of practice and celebrate the skills that undertaking research at this level develops. This will be followed by a group dinner (own cost) for those that want to continue the conversations and network with fellow researchers.
Facilitated by Dr Saul Karnovsky

The presentations are designed to give you an opportunity to share your research in a small group setting. Each workshop participant will have 6 minutes – with 4 minutes to present and 2 minutes for questions.
Your presentation should include:
- What your research topic is about
- Why it is important to you
- Where you are up to in the research process – early, mid, late?
- What has been the biggest surprise / challenge in the process so far?
You may create a short PowerPoint slides to accompany your presentation, however, make it a maximum of five (5) slides. You will need to bring a laptop to display your presentation as we will be working in smaller groups away from the central projector screen. Preparing slides is not compulsory – a verbal summary of your work so far is also encouraged.

Saul is an experienced pre-service teacher educator and early career researcher, specialising in the fields of teacher emotions, pedagogy, professional ethics, and classroom management. His recently completed thesis explored pre-service teacher emotions in learning to teach. This research draws upon post-structural theory to examine how emotions emerge within the modern neo-liberal contexts of schooling from the historical, social, and political processes in which they are enacted. Embracing an alternative ontological space, Saul seeks to deeply engage with new ideas and different theoretical perspectives of education. His current research interests are in supporting schools and pre-service teachers to provide open and understanding spaces for educators to address emotional labour in a professional and ethical manner.
