Visualising ResearchThe Visualising Research Initiative brings together postgraduate design students in the School of Communications and Arts and researchers from around the University to develop visual interpretations for research. This project is open to all staff researchers, honours, master by research and doctoral students. The project's main goals provide insight into complex research by means of different visualisation methods.
Visualising Research allows designers to seek new and effective ways of displaying information that makes infographics, comics, maps, series of photographs or 3D models of data more comprehensible and attractive. This initiative also offers themed competitions and a chance to show visual research galleries at ECU research events.
"The visualising research initiative is rapidly evolving beyond its initial scope of helping researchers from across ECU to uncover new, visual ways of presenting their research findings. Now researchers and design students are partnering to develop ways to frame research questions, and even looking beyond visuals towards better understanding the research audience. From the design point of view, the opportunity for the students to work with real clients, who aren’t the typical start-up company assumed to be the standard design client, has been invaluable."

Celebration of the Book
Students graduating with a higher degree in writing from ECU complete a thesis comprising a major creative work and accompanying exegesis. More than half of these research projects have resulted in significant publications. We are proud to showcase a selection of ECU creative writing publications by our PhD, masters and honours students and ECU staff on the above gallery. This exhibition will be on display at Bunbury and Joondalup campuses in 2014. For more information contact Dr Robyn Mundy.
