POGO event list

1. POGO reading group for POGO PhD students. The purpose of the reading group is to help you explore some key topics and literature in the field of Policy and Governance, and to see how particular methodologies are applied in those areas, so that you get a broader picture of the field while you dig into your own research topic in depth. The reading group is an opportunity to explore many of the ideas you were introduced to in the Research Design course in a more applied way. This deeper familiarity with the field may also help you to demonstrate your knowledge of the field, particularly if you want to get into academic or research positions in the future. The reading group usually meets on a monthly basis. I have invited POGO staff members to suggest some readings which can be found at POGO reading group schedules & reading list. If you are interested in getting involved, please drop me a message at bjoern.dressel@anu.edu.au

2. POGO conversation in which staff members or guest speakers will present their work in progress. This event will be open to POGO PhD students. This is a good opportunity to be part of the production process of these research. You can examine the works of your supervisors and other researchers as they are still far from being published, observe how they get criticised and also get your claws into them. You will receive a notice from A/Professor Fiona Yap. I will also circulate the information to you again once I see the notice. To prove to you that your supervisor really would not mind your comments, we have set up an award for active participation in this event. At the end of this year, we will have a small ceremony.

3. POGO PhD presentation. As in the past, all PhD students are expected to do one presentation each year. Please contact your supervisor to arrange this and send in your request to me at bjoern.dressel@anu.edu.au to book a slot. It is important to note that the presentations tend to come all together at a certain time of the year. But it really does not matter when you do the presentation as you are not going to be assessed by it. The purpose of the presentation is to give you an opportunity to present your work and get feedback. The more you practice, the better you will get.

4. POGO PhD morning or afternoon teas. We will try to set up regular opportunities for a cake and a cuppa. Please drop me a message if you want to be involved in the preparation of this at bjoern.dressel@anu.edu.au .
