SDP 2009


short cut to the wiki:

After the SDP, please complete the Evaluation Survey (Deadline for submissions is 5pm BST on 27th July. Thanks all!)

Welcome to all SDP students and tutors!

This is the wiki for SDP 2009. Our aim is that this should be the main source of up-to-date information about the programme, participants and other activities and we have also provided a workspace which can be edited by any of you so that you can use it to support your time in Brisbane as you best see fit.

In the meanwhile, can I just say how delighted we are to have you all on board for what promises to be our best Summer Doctoral Programme yet. The OII is delighted to be partnering with the Creative Industries Faculty at QUT, and we're really grateful for all the work that Marcus, Jean, Julie and Jaz have put into helping make this such a great line-up. I wish I could be with you - have a great time!

Vicki Nash

Director of Graduate Studies, OII

Arrival Information

Accommodation has been arranged at Quest River Park Central from 5th July (check-in) to 18th July 2009 (check-out) and two persons have been assigned to each apartment. Quest River Park Central requires each guest to provide a credit card upon check in for security against any incidentals/ damages.

Travel to and from the OII SDP sessions (at the QUT Kelvin Grove campus) will be via the QUT 391 shuttle bus, which departs from the entrance to the QUT Gardens Point Campus. Travel on this bus is restricted to QUT staff and students. We have arranged special passes for OII SDP students.

There will be a drinks reception at the Quest Apartments pool area from 4.00-5.30 pm on Sunday the 5th July - please make every effort to come along as this is where you'll get your bus pass, which you will need for transport to the SDP the following morning.

Quest Apartments

If you cannot attend the drinks reception on Sunday, please meet Marcus Foth at the lobby / reception area of Quest Apartments on Monday at 8am sharp. The shuttle bus leaves Gardens Point campus 8.35am to take everyone to the QUT Kelvin Grove campus.

QUT 391 shuttle bus timetable - please note until 13th July, the bus is on the reduced timetable, trips marked 'C' do NOT operate!

You will need travel insurance including appropriate health cover in order to attend the course. QUT will request evidence of your travel insurance when you arrive to issue your University Visitor ID card.
