2016 RCBC Residential

This year has flown by and as we start a new academic year the scholars have once again come together for a two day residential.The event started with presentations from all of the schoalrs, providing a really opportunity to hear about all of the great things that they have been doing. Although we meet every two months the programmes for our master-classes are so busy that we often don't have much of a chance for this type of catch-up.

The choice of presentation formats made for a dynamic session with no 'death by PowerPoint'! Some chose to speak about their work using a traditional conference poster as their prompt, others selected a Pecha Kucha type format. With 5 minutes of speaking time, each presenter put together 15 slides with an automatic slide transition every 20 seconds. The brief was to use

imagery as the primary content with text kept to a minimum.

 

New for 2016 was the 3MT option. Originating 'down-under' the 3 minute thesis format challenges the presenter to speak for 3 minutes on their work using only a single static slide and language appropriate to a lay-audience

Our afternoon session on Day 1 brought together a range of excellent speakers for a panel discussion looking at how individuals and organisations use reearch. Thanks to all of our contributors:

Helen Whyley

Michael Bowdery

Robyn Davies

Day 2 focused on the scholars' personal development. Sylvia Vacher (Objectives Training) provided a very insightful workshop on The Fundamentals of Effective Management  and RCBC alumni Drs Paul Gill and Joanne Pike led a session on Career Choices and Action Plans.
