Presenter: Dr Cameron Neylon, Media, Creative Arts and Social Enquiry, Curtin University.  

Evaluating research responsibly, efficiently and effectively is increasingly challenging. While the availability of data and tools has expanded, the transparency, flexibility, and contextual relevance of these can be limiting. At the same time the need for efficiency and speed in research evaluation is increasing. In turn these requirements have led to increasing antagonism from researchers themselves towards evaluation.

This workshop will confront these issues head-on. We will use the SCOPE model developed by INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group to support responsible evaluation to address these issues and provide a framework for successfully engaging stakeholders. Working with new data sources and techniques we will show both the potential power of data-driven approaches and the dangers and pitfalls associated with them.


The Winter School has no formal pre-requisites for the electives featured in the 2020 program. The electives are intended for:

·         Mid-senior level research management staff interested in developing a deep, practical understanding of the topics; and

·         ARMFs - ARMS Accredited Research Managers (Foundation) or ARMAs - Accredited Research Managers (Advanced) seeking to broaden their practical understanding of the topics - Note: ARMFs and ARMAs can claim CPD hours if completing an elective.


Each Winter School elective has a list of suggested pre-reading materials that is documented in the prospectus and also attached to the Event Purchase Notification (Confirmation email). The pre-reading list will also serve as a future resource list for participants.


At the end of the workshop, participants will be invited to complete a non-compulsory assessment.

Those participants who wish to enrol in a future cohort of the Advanced Level Accreditation Program (ALAP) are strongly encouraged to successfully complete this assessment as this will count as credit towards the ALAP, provided enrolment commences within the next two years.  

ARMS Members: $550 per elective (GST inclusive) - Price will be discounted in the Shopping Cart.
Non-Members: $650 per elective (GST inclusive)

CPD: Accredited members (ARMAs and ARMFs) will automatically accrue 8 CPD hours per elective.
