Workshop: Lessons learned from the Australian Research Council

Today Professor Lisa Given and I presented a workshop for researchers in the Faculty of Education and Research Institute of Professional Practice, Learning and Education at Charles Sturt University. The morning session was titled: “Lessons learned from the Australian Research Council” and covered the following content:
  • Experiences as a grant writer – Sharynne McLeod
  • Experiences as a grant assessor – Lisa Given, ARC
  • Discussion of participants' questions, issues
After the workshop participants had 1:1 feedback sessions about their grant applications.
I shared the following editorial – and while it was written about writing journal articles it also applies to grant writing.
