Every two months throughout the academic year, all of those who are currently funded under the RCBCWales scheme come together for bespoke days of personal and professional development. All Fellows receive training at their host institiutions so these masterclasses aim to provide opportunitites 'above and beyond' this. Since the residental in September we have covered a range of subjects and a big thank you goes out to the great speakers who have contributed to the programme:
Managing your digital presence: researcher profiles and social media Julie Kissick, USW
Making sense of qualitative data: principles, approaches and practical tips (workshop) Dr Gina Dolan, USW
Observational studies and fieldwork conundrums Prof. Deborah Roberts, Glyndwr
Resilience Andy McCann, DNA Definitive
Community, art and engagement Dr Adeola Dewis. USW
Research and scientific misconduct Dr Paul Gill, Cardiff
So what do we have coming up? A practical day of media training and a day looking at funders, funding tips and how to address the big hot topic of Impact!
