Northern Institute Presents People, Policy, Place Seminar Series 2017

Professor Robert Faff
Director of Research, UQ Business School
The University of Queensland

Abstract
In this paper I build on Faff’s (2015) pitching template framework that provides a succinct and methodical approach to pitching a new research proposal to an academic expert. Notably, I argue that the pitching tool can be used as (a) a research planning tool (e.g. Chang and Wee, 2016; Menzies, Dixon and Rimmer, 2016); (b) a research skills development tool (Faff, 2016b); (c) a research learning tool (Faff, Ali, et al., 2016; Faff, Wallin, et al., 2016 and Ratiu, 2016); (d) a research agenda setting  tool (Maxwell, 2017; Nguyen, 2017); (e) a research mentoring tool (Faff, Godfrey and Teng, 2016; Ratiu, Faff and Ratiu, 2016); (f) a research collaboration tool (Wallin and Spry, 2016); (g) research engagement & impact tool (Faff & Kastelle, 2016); and (h) research led teaching tool (Faff, Li, Nguyen & Ye, 2016). Moreover, the current paper provides an update on an extensive array of supplementary online resources. Most notably, to demonstrate that the pitch template is readily adaptable to many fields, a library of completed examples currently spans ONE HUNDRED and FIFTY alternative research areas. Other online materials and support include: web portal (PitchMyResearch.com); YouTube videos; themed pitch days; pitching competitions. Also, this project has been identified as one of 30 Innovations that Inspire across the AACSB network worldwide Business Schools.

Presenter:  Maurice O'Riordan

Date: Apr 13, 2017

Artmart's emphasis on the art 'market' might seem odd for a not-for-profit contemporary art gallery but there's more to the 'mart in 'Artmart' than meets the eye which the exhibition's curator, Maurice O'Riordan, intends to elaborate on with this talk.

Representing the work of 15 artists and one animation studio, Artmart 2017 runs to 29 April at the Northern Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA), Darwin. Maurice O'Riordan is the Director of NCCA since 2013.
