OUR SPEAKERS

Assistant Professor Robyn Lincoln
Criminology
Faculty of Society and Design, Bond University

Researcher Resilience: Four Lessons from Four Decades

Robyn's academic background is in the social sciences with special interest in Aboriginal criminal justice issues. Her research work has been conducted at University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and Rutgers University in New Jersey. Robyn has experience in academic publishing and worked as Senior Editor at Aboriginal Studies Press in Canberra for five years. She was Managing Editor of the Journal of Sociology and the Australian Journal of Social Issues.

While Robyn has broad-ranging interests in the criminological field, she has focused on the treatment of marginalised groups within the criminal justice system. In particular, her focus is on theoretical developments in the Aboriginal justice arena and concerns around juvenile justice such as the public identification of youth who come before the courts.

Robyn uses the lens of “resilience” to examine the pleasures and pitfalls of her involvement in research over the past (almost) forty years. She limits herself to extract four main lessons about the challenges of research ─ about technology, grants, advocacy, and statistics ─ along with some subsidiary observations and anecdotes from the field.

Associate Professor Linda Crane
Deputy Dean
Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, Bond University

Research in Higher education: student experience and graduate employability

Dr Crane’s research has focused on the Australian higher education which is a major industry with government funding in the billions of dollars and substantial personal contributions, through time and financial investment in studies, by students. In light of this investment, it is not surprising that the focus on the value of higher education from a public and personal perspective is increasing. Two important aspects of this focus are outcomes, reflected in graduate employability, and the quality of student experience during their studies and its relationship to learning.

In exploring these issues Linda’s presentation will discuss two National Strategic Priority Projects funded by the Australian Government, Office for Learning and Teaching. One explored strategies to improve employability from the perspectives of students, graduates, educators and employers. The other explored student and educator perceptions of the postgraduate student experience. The presentation will focus on results and subsequent practical strategies that can be applied to improve graduate employability and postgraduate student experience across the sector.
