D10 - Divergence and convergence in international research cultures and practices: implications for researcher developers

Day 2 at 13:45 - Cross-cultural researcher development is a complex and multi-faceted emerging area. For example, it could include UK HEIs and research institutes with overseas campuses, UK researchers moving internationally, international researchers moving to the UK, and international research collaborations. However, the needs of researchers in international campuses and international researchers are not necessarily all the same.

This workshop will explore the challenges for researcher developers working with international researchers and within international structures of strategic and research collaboration. What are the similarities and differences and how can we identify,  exchange best practice and leverage established resources such as the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and the associated Mobility lens to good effect to support mobile international researchers and emerging researcher development practices in overseas campuses. What community actions should we take to help researcher developers meet the challenges of researcher development across cultures.
