BIRCH is partnering with The Actuator for a half day workshop. The focus is on ideation, goal setting, and how to pitch your ideas on improvement, innovation, or the next big thing in medicine and allied health.
This is an opportunity to learn how to shape the future of health and medicine by refining how you consider, describe and share your visions. This workshop is a capacity building session – participants don’t need to have their own medical technology inventions or ideas yet. (Also note all IP remains with the relevant individual or organisations; participation in the workshop does not transfer it to The Actuator or BIRCH.)
Any medical and allied health staff and students from BIRCH's partner organisations are invited to attend.
It will be of particular interest to:
* This workshop is different to the workshop hosted in November 2019. It is suitable for both those who attended previously and those attending an Actuator workshop for the first time. *
When: March 26, 9am - 1pm
Where: Education Resource Centre. The Base Hospital, Ballarat.
Food: Catering provided
RSVP: Places are limited. Attendees must register.
BIRCH hosts regular Shut Up and Write sessions.
These sessions are ideal for anyone with a health research project underway, who needs a bit of oomph to get their bum on the chair and focus on their writing for a chunk of time. The sessions make what can often be an isolated process social, and the quiet team environment helps motivate everyone to stay focused for each of the timed writing sprints.
(Attendees are welcome to undertake data analysis or readings etc instead, but it is often writing that people struggle to prioritise and do for meaningful stretches of time without becoming distracted.)
Fridays 1pm - 4pm (no obligation to attend the whole session)
Tea, coffee and snacks provided.
