Event description

Description

This programme has been designed to tackle some of the main issues faced by Postgraduate Researchers when entering in to the world of academia. Dr Andy Mycock and Dr Chris Gifford will offer their expertise and experience in these areas to help you develop skills and become a professional in the academic world.


Academic Writing and Publishing - Wednesday 15 November 16:00 – 17:00 in R1/11

Dr Chris Gifford discusses the challenges of academic writing and publishing. Academics rarely discuss the difficulties of writing and publishing, even though these activities are fundamental to an academic career. For new doctoral students the prospect of producing an 80,000 or more word thesis can be very daunting. When we are struggling with writing, we can too easily assume that it is our problem. Yet academics at any stage of their career can find writing difficult and will have to deal with criticism and rejection that comes with publishing. Strategies and approaches we can take to write and publish more effectively will be discussed.

Organising and Presenting at Conferences - Wednesday 22 November 16:00 – 17:00 in R1/11

Dr Andy Mycock will provide an overview of how to organise a conference or other academic and non-academic events. Drawing on a range of personal experiences and published academic work, he will discuss how to: source funding, design a call for papers, develop a programme of speakers, and identify keynote speakers. He will also discuss how to present research at different types of events and for different audiences.

Research Impact and Dissemination - Wednesday 29 November 16:00 – 17:00 in R1/12

Dr Andy Mycock is one of the School leads on Impact for the forthcoming REF and widely-experienced in impact-orientated research. He will provide an overview of how Postgraduate Researchers can enhance the impact of their research, discussing how to reach a range of policy-making, academic, and media audiences. He will also consider how you might disseminate your research through different engagement strategies and mediums
