SPARC (Supporting Progression in Academic Research Careers) offers the opportunity for Early Career Researchers and Academic staff with a professional background and new to research (Early Research Careers) to successfully develop and implement a research career plan alongside their existing roles.
The first cohort of 15 SPARC members started working together in May 2016 and will complete in May 2017. The programme allowed them “protected” monthly afternoons to learn about and discuss RKE related issues (publication, income generation, research management, etc.). It allowed SPARC members to exchange experiences and strategies, meet with experienced researchers and spend time writing and making progress on their individually negotiated work plans. SPARC members were allocated a Research Mentor and were overseen by a Sponsor. Continue reading SPARC (Supporting Progression in Academic Research Careers)
Thursday 2nd February 2017 – Augustine Hall
The Faculties of Education and Health & Wellbeing have organised a joint conference designed to inspire you and to extend your lens of professional possibilities. Interprofessional work can challenge assumptions about knowledge and practice and by doing so, it can extend the professional landscape.
Colleagues from the Faculties of Health & Wellbeing and Education have organised presentations and workshops to stimulate fresh thinking and created talking spaces to debate issues about integrated practice in a multidisciplinary arena.
If you would like to attend the conference, please register using the link below. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/interprofessional-education-sharing-research-and-practice-tickets-30848249946
