Yorkshire and North East Collaborative Researcher21 June 2012 - 22 June 2012
***This course is now fully booked***
Collaboration lies at the heart of the research model for the 21st Century. Individual researchers wishing to build successful careers need to connect with, and impress, a broad network of professional colleagues. Projects no longer solely operate under the traditional model of a single researcher or group and draw upon a range of partners from the subjects, institutions and sectors required to answer bigger and more far-reaching questions.
This 2 day course will look at the building blocks of the collaborative style of research:
- inclusive communication
- cultural awareness
- robust planning
- the ability to work effectively with others.
Whether your collaboration is with another academic in your department, or partners from different subjects, sectors and countries, it will help you to develop winning strategies for connecting and working with others.
What will it involve?
The course will be attended by up to 40 researchers from across the country, from different disciplines and career stages. The course will be led by a team of experienced facilitators who will work with you throughout the 2 days to support your learning. They will be from a variety of backgrounds with experience in collaboration & academia.
This course takes a ‘learning by doing' approach. There will be presentations on collaboration theory, but for the most part, you will be actively participating in the sessions and activities.
This is an intensive 2 day course. When registering for the course you will be expected to attend for the full duration.
What's in it for you?
This course offers you the opportunity to:
- explore collaboration both in theory and in practice
- work with a team of experienced facilitators from a range of career backgrounds, who will ensure you get the most out of the 2 days
- meet researchers from a variety of disciplines, backgrounds and career stages
- develop your understanding of collaboration theory and how to apply it in practice
- take a few days out from your research both physically and mentally, and have some space in which to consider yourself and your next steps
