Systematic review workshop Nov 11, 2014 (9am -12pm at Cybertheque)

There is another exciting workshop on systematic review this year that is spread out over two semesters. Please try to attend these workshops as they are great stepping stones to understanding how to build a search strategy and write a high quality systematic review. It also helps you find more literature in your own area of interest that will later help in your writing.

Please make sure you submit your names to Maria at graduate.rehabilitation@mcgill.ca

Dont miss the opportunity!

GRSS Game Night Oct 2, 2014

Board game night was organised again this year at Thompson House on Thursday 2nd Oct, 2014. Although the attendance for the event was much less than last year, it still turned out to be a great evening.

Social events such as this bonds people, brings out a great spirit among the attendees and helps you learn so much more about an individual. Playing games tap into the fun side as well as the highly competitive side of a person. It also facilitates team spirit and trust. These small exercises outside the academic set up, we as council members believe, help people get closer and thus encourages greater academic interaction among the students of rehab sciences.

We will definitely organise another game night this year or the next year, so you all can come out and learn about yourselves and others, in a total fun and casual atmosphere.

Hope to see you all next time!

Noesis Discussion Group

On behalf of Hiba Zafran
After multiple requests to organize further discussion groups,  students and faculty are once again invited to participate in the Noesis group.
Noesis ~ From the Greek ‘mind’, an idea, a concept, understanding – that which gives sense and meaning to the content of our minds and intentionality
The purpose of establishing a ‘noetic space’ in the Rehabilitation Science program is to create a safe opportunity for discussion amongst faculty and students interested in exploring concepts, ideas, ways of knowing, theoretical commitments, and research actions and reactions. The discussion group focuses on research questions and issues that arise from interpretive and qualitative inquiry, and which can critically inform various questions in rehabilitation research.
Our first two meetings covered the themes of boundaries in data collection and analysis, researcher and participant vulnerability, and multiple positions/selves and ways of knowing. We began to articulate the mission and structure of the group, and are maintaining an expanding bibliography.
