Future of Work Institute


Due to issues and concerns related to COVID-19,

sessions will be run online and please be in touch 

if you are interested in attending.

The FOWI Academy is an informal program of learning, designed for Early Career Researchers (ECRs)

within the domains of Management, Organisational Psychology and Organisational Behaviour.

Although people from other disciplines and all career stages are welcome to join at any stage!

Interactive Learning

The Academy offers a development on a range of topics, including:


How to craft your academic career.



How to 'speak to' industry and governments to attract demand-driven research investment.


The latest research methods in the field, and how to use them.

Altogether, there will be approximately one interactive FOWI Academy session per month.

Each session will be presented by expert(s) in the field. During the sessions participants will be able to interact with the presenters directly or indirectly via live polling.

After each session, participants will be invited to a Microsoft Teams channel for post-session debrief and Q&A.


There may be some preparations required, and possibly homework afterwards to consolidate your learning.

The 2020 FOWI Academy Schedule

Sessions will run on Thursday afternoons between 1-3pm, and will be held on Level 4, 78 Murray Street, Perth.

All FOWI Academy sessions will be recorded and uploaded to Microsoft Stream. We cannot guarantee that all recordings will be available, nor that they will be of sufficient quality.

Please also note that sessions may sometimes be cancelled or postponed.
