Fantasy Pitching V follows in the footsteps of four earlier fantasy pitching exercises: Faff, Ali, et al. (2016); Faff, Wallin et al. (2016); Faff, Carrick, et al (2017) & Faff, Baladi, et al (2017). Like all prior versions, the current paper challenges teams of novice researchers to use the framework of Faff’s (2015, 2017a) pitching research template, in a time constrained setting, to pitch fictitious research projects.
The contexts reported in the current paper come four different settings:
(a) a PhD course run at the University of Economics, Prague (April 2017);
(b) UQ Summer Research Scholar cohort, 2017-18;
(c) AFDEN and,
(d) FIRN PhD courses on the “Research Process”.
The fantasy application of the “pitching” approach provides a low stress environment for appreciating and exploring the underlying philosophy of the pitching research tool.
Herein, we share the fruits of thirteen fantasy teams relating to:
(a) Handshaking habits I;
(b) Handshaking habits II;
(c) Warm ice-cream;
(d) Misery vs. happiness;
(e) income equality;
(f) Air pollution;
(i) Toupee power;
(l) Fashion; and
