Dawes Centre for Future Crime
Below you can find our reading group schedule. The structure of each session is flexible but generally contains the following components:
- Each session is scheduled for 1 hour
- For each session, the presenter presents the paper in 10-15min
- The paper presentation is flexible and ideally does not rely on PowerPoint
- The presentation should cover a small summary of the core idea, the method and the findings, plus some ideas for discussion with the group
- It is expected that each attendee read the paper before the meeting
Examples for discussion points are:
- Were the methods appropriate (special data set/evaluation)?
- Are the results of importance?
- How does this relate to our reserach?
- What should we make of the paper as a whole or in the specific community?
- Also, were there any aspects you did not understand?
We then talk about these issues as a group and everyone can pitch in their thoughts and ideas. Important is, that we are not set to a specific layout, but rather go with the discussion and see where it leads us. Since we represent quite a range of different reserach areas, this should be an opportunity to ask questions on any aspects we would like to know more about, in which others might have some expertise in.
The location of the meetings is announced a few weeks prior in the calendar invite.
Happy reading :)
