Flinders Research NewsResearch Communications by researchers and for researchers
The Researcher Professional Development Team invites Flinders researchers to the first in a series of skills training and development workshops: Research Communications for engagement and impact – by researchers, for researchers across the disciplines.
This action-learning workshop, led by Dr Andrew Stapleton, Professional Research Communicator and host and producer for Australia’s Science Channel, will equip each participant with the skills to write for multidisciplinary audiences. Using a robust best-practice tool-kit, this workshop will provide researchers with the opportunity to produce a lede and structured outline for an article that will communicate the impact of their research, and during this process, get real-time feedback and advice from an industry professional. This workshop aims to improve researchers’ awareness of research impact and celebrate it through great writing.
Researchers at all career stages who are keen to build skills to effectively communicate their research impact are invited to register. Please keep an eye on Inspiring Research and ienrol over the coming days for the confirmed details and to register for this workshop that is scheduled for 10 April, 1:30 – 4:30 pm, Bedford Park Campus. Please note that places are limited.
The Researcher Professional Development team is led by Dr Marina Delpin and is part of the Flinders’ Research Development and Support Division. The team coordinates training and development that builds key skills that are core to the research process, and doing research, at Flinders. Working closely with the Vitae Researcher Development Framework and research leaders, further skills training and development activities are being developed and rolled out, with the aim to impart the knowledge, key traits and attributes of effective, highly successful researchers. Please contact Marina if you have any queries about the opportunities coordinated by this team, including their flagship programs that build researcher capacity and capabilities – the Researcher Mentoring Scheme for ECRs and Building Research Leaders Program for MCRs.
