Collaborative Researcher, 31st May AND 11th June: University of Warwick31 May 2012 - 11 June 2012
Is this course right for you?
Collaboration is more than the icing on the research cake; it now 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, negotiation and 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 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 and other sectors.
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 on both days (31st May AND 11th June) What's in it for you? This course offers you the opportunity to:
