Frequently Asked Questions

On this page you will find the answers to all you questions about the workshops and the No-Bell Prize competition.

Attending the Workshops

  • Who can attend?

    Any graduate researchers from the Melbourne Dental School and the Melbourne Medical School at the University of Melbourne.

  • Do I need to attend the workshop at my Department/Precinct location?

    You can choose any of the locations listed on the registration page. We need a minimum of 4 people to register at the location for it to be used. If less than 4 people register at that location, you will be offered another location or to join online.

  • I cannot attend¬†¬†on that date - will the sessions be recorded?

    Sessions will be recorded and made available to registered participants for 12 months following delivery.

No-Bell Prize event

  • Who can attend the event?

    This event is for members of the Melbourne Dental School and Melbourne Medical School.

  • How do I enter?

    Applications will open in April.  We will share some guidelines before applications open.

  • What is jargon?

    Jargon is language which would not be understood by people from outside your research field. This might include acronyms, technical terms and medical terms which are not explained in an accessible way.  For example, referring to the MMS EMCA rather than the Melbourne Medical School's Early and Mid Career Academics Advisory Committee.

  • Who will decide the winner?

    Our panel will ring the bell each time they hear jargon. A support person will manage the time and count the bells as they ring. The No-Bell Prize winner will be the person with the least bells rung by the judging panel during their presentation.

    There will also be a People's Choice Award voted by the audience on the night via an online poll.
