August 19 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEST
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia

Even though the Nobel Prizes cannot be awarded to teams; even though students cannot be supervised by researchers from multiple universities; even though systems prevent data sharing outside organisations; there’s an expectation that collaboration – across universities – happens.

An Introduction to University Ranking Schemes

August 26 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEST
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia

University ranking schemes are like stars – there are lots around, but we really only pay attention to the ones that are the brightest.
