Workshop Abstracts

This day will be comprised of a series of workshops aimed at helping early career researchers to develop their understanding of research in Education and enhance their skills as a researcher. These workshops are run by highly experienced staff who are happy to share their own experiences as researchers and practitioners in a variety of education roles and careers.

In addition to sharing their own insights they will welcome the comments, questions and experiences of those attending the workshop as well. The aim is to have a discussion not a lecture and so inputs from all those you attend will be more than welcome.

This year’s event includes sessions on a variety of topics such as…

  • Gaining HEA Status: What is HEA fellowship and why should you care about it?
  • What kind of academic are you?
  • The secrets of stress free communication: Managing the supervision-relationship from a student perspective
  • When numbers are not enough: Qualitative research in an age of measuring.
  • The Hazards of the Will to Teach: A Guide for New Lecturers
  • Writing for publication

This event is entirely FREE to attend. Refreshments will be provided. You do not need to attend the main conference to attend this day. You will need to contact us to register for this event so that we can ensure we have sufficient space and resources for all.
