The series is intended to be collegial and developmental, an opportunity to present a puzzle or a challenge from a research project (for e.g., conceptual, empirical, theoretical, methodological, or related to writing) and to draw on the collective expertise available for feedback that is both productive and future-oriented. The goal is to support staff progress their efforts towards scholarly dissemination. The Research Talks program for 2018 is now available. (PDF, 75.89 KB)
