Submit an Expression of Interest

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from students keen to share their work at the 2016 Graduate Coursework Colloquium – and we want to hear from you! It doesn’t have to be fully sketched out, just send us your draft ideas using the form below.

What if I have never contributed to a conference before?

Don’t worry! A training day for presenters will be held prior to the Colloquium so that you can learn how best to engage your audience and deliver your topic. There are also many different ways in which you can get involved – see below.

What kind of topics should I suggest?

The Colloquium is an opportunity for students to present on any aspect of graduate coursework study. For example, you could talk about what you Create (e.g. your work or research output); how you Relate (eg your cohort experience or community journey); or what you Experience (e.g. an account of an internship, exchange, or study abroad trip).

What kind of contribution can I propose?

There are three types of contributions you can propose:

  1. Presentation. Propose a 15 to 25 minute presentation on a topic of your choice. Within these timeslots, presenters will have total freedom of format. Wow us with a speech, stage a debate, screen a short film, deliver a live performance, etc. Tell us your ideas!
  2. Conversation. Have a hot topic you’re dying to discuss? Express your interest in becoming a conversation starter! Tell us your proposed question / topic / issue. Your session would be run as a quick-fire group discussion ignited by your prompt.
  3. Exhibit. More of a visual thinker, or just want to avoid public speaking? Propose an idea for a poster, sculpture, or other type of physical installation. These submissions will be on display in Arts Hall for colloquium attendees to check out throughout the day.

We can’t wait to read your submission!

Submit here before Monday 29 February 2016.
