Updates to the HDR Connect Team space

HDR Connect is an online Microsoft Office Team for all Flinders HDR students. It is a collaborative, peer learning space where everyone is encouraged to share and comment. This is an initiative led by the Office of Graduate Research, where students can come together to meet, share information and resources, provide feedback and organise events.

Recently, we have introduced some changes to the space based on your feedback, including organising more regular events and creating new channels. Below is a summary of all the channels within HDR Connect. You can access these when and if needed, and manage your notification settings so that you receive only the information relevant to you. If you have not engaged with the HDR Connect space, click Read More below and come have a look!



This channel will now be dedicated to key announcements from the Office of Graduate Research Team. It will not be used very often.
Discussion Forum


This is a dedicated channel for discussion where anyone can post. Use this channel to post questions about your research, ask about HDR-student life and to connect with each other. You can also schedule online catch-ups in the calendar if you want to ‘meet’ rather than connect via keyboards.
HDR Community Notice Board (new channel)


This is a dedicated channel for sharing opportunities relevant to the HDR Community. Use this channel to promote HDR-related events (including social catch-ups), HDR-relevant training opportunities as well as funding and job opportunities. Everyone can post in here. Note: Posts are moderated, so will not appear instantly.
HDR Development Drop-in Sessions (new channel) This channel is dedicated space for scheduled drop-in sessions where you can get help with research related matters. The current offerings include:

In person Drop-in – every Monday from 3-5pm at HDR Central
Online Drop-in – every Wednesday from 6-8pm in HDR Development Drop-in Channel

HDR Online Working Sessions (previously Writebunch) This channel is a dedicated virtual office-space where you can work- alongside other HDR students. As a student-led space, you can come along to one of the scheduled online sessions, or schedule ‘working’ sessions when you like. The current offerings include:
HDR Online Working Session – every Tuesday 10-11am
HDR Soundboarding Session – every Wednesday 12-1pm
Thesis Writing Discussion Group


This channel is dedicated to the monthly thesis writing discussion group. This session usually led by Dr Dani Milos and is a place where HDR students can share their experiences and discuss progress with thesis writing. You can register for these sessions in Inspire, or just add them to your calendar from the channel. Students from all candidature stages welcome.
Welcome to New Students


This channel has been set up to allow new students to introduce themselves and meet each other. We encourage you to check it regularly and connect with anyone whose research sounds interesting or relevant to you 😊
