Lockdown Learning

The SPaRK Development week scheduled for week commencing 11th May could not take place at The Graduate School as a result of CO-VID 19 and University closure.

To continue the spirit of learning and collaboration the cohort participated in a challenge where they identified a key skill from the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and researched online learning available to Early Stage Researchers.

5 teams undertook the challenge and presented their findings and recommendations to their fellow cohort members via MS Teams.
