Writing retreat - Students in Primary Care Research (SPCR)
SPCR students held their annual graduate online writing symposium from 20-24 July 2020. Hosted by Fitriana Ekawati and Jianrong Zhang, the traditionally face-to-face symposium was adapted to “online mode” due to COVID-19 restrictions. Along with pomodoro technique writing sessions, students enjoyed presentations from three external speakers: Dr Victoria Zhang from AME Publishing (topic: Landscape of academic journal publishing) - organised and facilitated by Jianrong Zhang; A/Prof Inger Mewburn aka The Thesis Whisperer (topics: fixing common thesis writing problems and what to do post-PhD) and Ms Katie Underwood (delivered a Sound meditation) - organised and facilitated by Amy Coe. The symposium was funded by a Graduate Students Association (GSA) Covid Special Grant.
