D7 - Researcher-led researcher development: The Hive Scholar model
|Presenters||Ms Joanna Ball - Library Academic Services Manager, University of Sussex
Dr Sarah Robins-Hobden - Manager, Vitae South East Hub, University of Sussex
The workshop covered:
The structure and operational aspects of the scheme; the successes and challenges that we and the Hive Scholars have encountered; how we maximised on the benefits; and how it could be adapted or ported to your institution. We took a view of the Scholar scheme and its benefits from the perspective of the researchers involved, and importantly, from the viewpoint of the benefits it provides to the institution. We used the Hive Scholar scheme as a launch pad to generate new ideas on how attendees may embed researcher development into their own institution's researcher environment, and establish how best to highlight the potential benefits and gain institutional support for doing so.
At the end of this session, participants:
- selected and adapedt relevant good practice to implement at your own institution;
- identified and outlined issues to consider when implementing a similar scheme at your own institution
- anticipated potential challenges in setting up peer-led initiatives, and planned to overcome or avoid them.
