‘Espresso Yourself’ Virtual Coffee Shop for HDR Students

HDR Coffee meeting banner

Northern Institute's Virtual Coffee Shop is dedicated to our HDR students (and supervisors) to keep connecting, prevent burnout and promote camaraderie.

Whether you are city-based, regional, remote or studying outside of Australia the Virtual Coffee Shop provides a platform to interact with like-minded research students to gain support, valuable advice or just a sympathetic ear. Grab a coffee and talk all things HDR with the ones who truly understand – your peers. Virtual coffee shop is held the 4th Wednesday of each month 3.00-4.00pm (ACST). Hosted by Professor Helen Verran.


The next 'Espresso Yourself' virtual meeting for 2021 will be held on Wednesday 27 October 3.00-4.00pm (ACST)


In October we continue the conversation by which we encourage each other to home in on theory that is going to work for us as researchers... Some questions...

  • How is it that some particular theory often seems to ‘just arrive’?
  • Where does theory come from?
  • What does theory offer us as researchers?
  • In which chapter of our thesis should we discuss theory?
  • What is the best way to read for theory?
  • If you think you have your theory... can you say exactly what it is a theory OF?


-Our Virtual Coffee Shop is ONLY open to all CDU HDR & PhD students-
