13th ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2017
Liverpool Hope University
Early Career Researcher Day
Early Career Researchers Event 28th June 2017
The Early Career Researcher Event is a day-long FREE event aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as early career staff; anyone who is already embarked on or thinking of embarking on a career as a researcher in Education.
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.
In the past this has included sessions on a variety of topics such as…
- How to write for publication
- Submitting your abstract and presenting at conferences
- Different perspectives on research (Qualitative, Quantitative, Philosophical)
- Joining professional organizations (e.g. HEA status)
- Finding/Working with a PhD thesis supervisor
- Translating a PhD or Postdoc into a career.
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.
