Adapt and Learn – FLF panel insights

We’re moving to online delivery in researcher development. Some of you will already have taken part in workshops delivered through Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate as we adapt to the strange and troubling times we’re in. Our priority as a team is to look after each other – we hope people are looking out for you as well.

I realise that researcher development won’t be a first thought for many of you, but when the time comes that you can think about your skills, research or training, we’ll be here.

I start today with a short session sharing some thoughts on my experiences on the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship and I’ll be adding to our library as we go.

Insights from the FLF panel

Before joining IAD I did a lot of training so I’m happy to respond to your requests. I’m thinking about having development drop-ins online and to dusting off my very old careers adviser skills to work alongside my colleague Eleanor in maintaining our new careers service for research staff.

Let me know what would be helpful via email or my twitter feed.

My plan is to make everything that we can open to all although I’ll prioritise requests from UoE researchers.

I hope you are all keeping well and being kind to yourself. It’s ok to find this tough, but we’re here for you.

Sara and all the Researcher Development Team
