Australian Psychological Society NT public lecture 


Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) Professor Carole Kayrooz presents ‘Practical research in organisations and communities: Tales from the real world’, as part of National Psychology Week on 15 November.

Nowadays people need to become seasoned researchers overnight in the workplace, government and in community settings. Professor Kayrooz will illustrate the problems, pitfalls, challenges, compromises and tensions that are inevitable in conducting research in these settings.

Using real case studies she will provide practical strategies to show that becoming a seasoned professional is not as difficult as first imagined.

Professor Kayrooz is dean of the Faculty of Education, Health and Science at CDU and chair of the Northern Territory Board of Studies. She is a registered psychologist holding a research doctorate in psychology. Her main area of research and publishing is in higher education, and she has been invited to present her work at the UNESCO Research Forum on Higher Education in Paris this November.

This lecture takes place on Wednesday 15 November from 6pm in the Theatrette, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Bullocky Point.

Join members of the APS NT Branch for refreshments after the lecture.
