WIPS (Work-in-Progress) Morning Teas 
10:15am to 11.15am

This session combines a social morning tea with the re-imagined HRC Work in Progress Seminar Series (WIPS)
It is informal but structured so please arrive on time.

- 15 minutes tea and bikkies
- 15 minutes work-in-progress talk (no ppts and preferably no direct reading from a script. Other props welcome)
- 15 minutes of feedback, questions, and chaired discussion. Note that HDR students and ECRs will be given priority for asking questions.
- 15 minutes free conversation and more tea

This series showcases the work-in-progress being undertaken by HRC Visiting Fellows and ANU faculty for an audience of engaged interdisciplinary peers. It provides an opportunity for the HRC community to gather to listen and provide feedback to researchers in a social environment. 

We particularly encourage research students to attend, and privilege questions and comments from junior researchers and staff members.
Don’t know anyone? Come a little bit early and we’ll introduce ourselves to you. It is a unique and enjoyable/enriching place to listen and contribute to interdisciplinary scholarship.
We can also provide discrete mentoring on effective academic engagement/communication (email us here)

Members of the university and the public are welcome to participate in these seminars.

Write-on-Site Sessions
11.30am to 1.30pm

Everyone is welcome to come together to work side-by-side on their own projects at a regularly scheduled time for consistency, accountability, and support.
The program consists of four 25-minute focused (quiet) writing phases with 5-minute breaks in between.
Academics, honoraries, visitors and graduate students from all disciplines working on any writing project (whether fellowship or grant applications, articles/essays, book projects, edited volumes, research reports, fiction/nonfiction, other output of any kind) are welcome to attend. 
You will need to bring your own computers, resources etc. 
Questions and RSVPs to Professor Kylie Message-Jones

Walk it off...to lunch

We recommend finishing off the intensive morning of work with an informal walk, lunch and debrief with a colleague before we all go our separate ways for the next week.
