Abstract

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;

(g) Divorce;

(h) Doraemon;

(i) Toupee power;

(j) Lego;

(k) Spiders;

(l) Fashion; and

(m) Crime.

Keywords: pitching research; fantasy pitching; pitching template; peer-to-peer learning; team pitching
