Research in practice

Research in practice is an integrated development programme which supports teams in the way that they do research. It offers a combination of focused information sessions and more in-depth development workshops and is aimed at all staff working on a research project, including academic staff currently holding, or planning to apply for research funding. Additionally, it is open to research professionals who want to develop their knowledge about specific aspects of the research project life cycle.

The sessions have been developed together with DREI and professional services colleagues from across the University and are mapped against the research project life cycle as shown in the Researcher’s Route Map. You will be able to choose which sessions best meet your priority needs.  A cross-cutting theme of how we promote a positive research culture will run throughout the individual workshop sessions.

All sessions can be booked through Develop by searching the catalogue for “Research in practice” or individual session titles. The majority of sessions are designed as bite-sized sessions lasting approximately 1 hour.

It was really helpful and practical - I also appreciated that it was a short session but managed to include lots of information. It felt like a really valuable use of my time.

I’ve attended several of these sessions so far and they have proved to be very useful. I’ve encouraged the researchers on my project to attend as well (and several have) I like the fact that they are "bite sized" so don’t require too much commitment but a great way to get the salient points across
