The Effective Researcher (2 day course)

Event Description



30 June - 1 July 2015


9.15am - 5.00pm


Designed for:

This programme is aimed at early career staff researchers within the first 3-15 months of a research contract with project management responsibility.  This course is delivered in partnership with Vitae, a national organisation that focuses on researcher development.


This is a new intensive two-day programme that uses a series of experiential learning activities to explore the practical skills required for successful project management and the further development of intellectual independence. Specifically this programme will cover:

  • Project management
  • Prioritisation of competing tasks and workloads
  • People management
  • Communication of your research 
  • Long-term career plans

These areas will be addressed holistically, but with plenty of scope to respond to the issues raised by participants.  Full attendance on both days is required as programme activities have been designed to integrate self-awareness and learning across key areas of project management and career development.
