2017 eMERGing Researchers Day

The MERGA Executive hosted the inaugural emerging researchers day with 17 mathematics education emerging researchers (early career researchers; post-doctoral researchers; PhD and master students). This one day event was held on the 20th November 2017 in Brisbane where emerging researchers (ERs) had the opportunity to work alongside more experienced researchers to develop writing and research skills. A major part of the day was ERs working closely with experienced researchers on a journal article they have prepared. Each ER submitted a manuscript which was shared between their group members (4-5 ERs) and the experienced researcher leading the session. Other presentations for the day included: Research impact – what does this mean for me as an ECR?; Navigating the ECR space; PhD supervision – tips for new supervisors.
The presentations and materials provided from the experienced researchers will be shared on our new members section on the MERGA webpage. We will notify all members when this becomes available.
