Did you know that there is a network of peer mentoring groups for postgraduate students at AUT? These are groups that meet up to support one another, give and receive feedback, practice presentations, share readings, and generally just lift each other up.
In honour of Postgraduate Week, several groups have opened their doors for their next meetings. Come one, come all – see what it’s all about, and decide whether you’d like to become a member of one (or more) of the groups.
NZ Scholars and ASEAN Students – 17 August, 1:30 – 2:30pm in WF711. This meeting is all about mixed methods, and Tina Yumei He will share her research on workplace violence against medical professionals in China. View the flyer here, or find out more about the group here.
