Event description

Description

Practitioner or Researcher to Academic

The overall theme of this symposium is to help delegates explore the challenges and opportunities in navigating a career progression and transitions from built environment practitioner or researcher to academic. Participants should have a willingness to share their experiences and expertise and engage with other delegates.

Aims:

  • To support academic colleagues through a structured and interactive workshop programme to further enhance and support their career progression and role transitions from practitioner or researcher to academic

  • To enable academic managers to reflect on staff development needs and effective development goals

Approach:

  • This interactive event will draw upon delegate experiences to inspire the sharing of ideas between academic colleagues who work in a variety of Built Environment institutions and disciplines

  • It is designed to bring together built environment academics to think, develop, and work collaboratively to approach career transitions in new and innovative ways

Why should I attend?

  • Meet, network and work alongside academics with a broad range of teaching and research interests to explore common themes, challenges and solutions

Who should attend?

  • This event brings together academics, practitioners and researchers either at early stages of their academic career, as well as experienced academics who are helping others with career transitions
