Description

Join us at the UCL's Institute of Education (IOE) Induction to Research event.

This termly event is for both new staff and current staff involved in research, to provide you with the most up to date information about the resources and development opportunities available to you for research at the IOE and UCL.

During this session, you'll:

  • Learn about the key research processes and activities at the IOE and UCL, and where to go for further information and training.
  • Hear from the teams involved in supporting research during quick-fire presentations.
  • Meet key research contacts during a group speed-dating session.
  • Gain insight into the main departmental research leads from a departmental Head of Research.
  • Get the opportunity to network with your fellow colleagues from across the IOE's departments.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided. You may also be interested in staying to attend the Research Staff Association's summer social event following lunch: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/research-staff-association-rsa-summer-social-tickets-58261949058

We always receive hugely positive feedback of the value of this event from attendees so please do not miss out on this opportunity of getting together in one room with many key research contacts!

Our Induction to Research Initiative links up to UCL's Organisational Development Programmes, which includes the UCL Researcher Induction.
