Online Researcher Development Resources for PGRs

As we enter June still in lockdown, I wanted to share some of the online researcher development resources freely available to PGRs.

Virtual Workshops – many of the scheduled RDP sessions are being delivered virtually. In June we have the following virtual sessions taking place:

  • Publishing my research
  • Academic writing
  • Milestone preparation: Viva Voce examination
  • Social media for researchers.

Spaces are available, booking via the Researcher Development Programme. 

Research Skills Toolkit – an online Research Skills Toolkit covering topics such as:

  • Becoming a Researcher
  • Research Methods
  • Disseminating your Research
  • Beyond Research
  • Research Ethics

You will need to set up an account on Epigeum, steps to follow to access the toolkit can be found on the Researcher Development Programme – Online Modules.

Video Arts – Comedy based videos and e-learning covering a range of personal and professional development topics. Personal wellbeing is a topic of huge importance but it is being particularly tested during this pandemic. Video Arts have complied a Micro-Series of content from their Wellbeing Essentials, selecting particularly relevant videos and supporting them with podcasts and other extras. It contains a mixture of videos, e-learning courses, podcasts, trailers and infographics.
Tip: Use the navigation within the e-learning, Brightspace navigation  will take you to the next module. 

Plus much more – you can also access a wider range of external resources via the ‘online content‘ tab on the RDP on Brightspace.
