Photo MKDr Margaret Kiley from the Australian National University  in Canberra in conjunction with the Wilf Malcolm Institute of Education Research (WMIER), will visit the University of Waikato in October to discuss the advantages and challenges of mature-age and part-time doctoral candidates.

While many mature-age (and often part-time) candidates bring with them considerable skills and experience, recent research suggests that some also bring particular challenges in learning to be researchers. This workshop addresses some of these challenges and possible strategies for dealing with them.
