I really encourage you to take part in the new 23 Research Things programme which has been developed by colleagues from the Betty & Gordon Moore Library. It launches on Monday 10th October.
What is this 23 Research Things?
23 Research Things is a training programme that will introduce you to 23 research tools or concepts to help inform your studies, research, or knowledge of the research process.
Who is it for?
Anyone can take part in the 23 Research Things programme whether you are working at undergraduate, postgraduate, postdoctoral, or researcher/academic level. Those working directly with students and researchers are also welcome to take part.
So what are you going to cover?
All topics will be presented as a video overview with some specific examples to give context so you can apply them to your own individual situation. We’ll be covering a whole range of different things such as using Twitter for research, how to collaborate using tools, and how to communicate ideas and research to different audiences.
When will it be and how much time will it take?
The 23 Research Things programme will run during Michaelmas Term 2016, starting officially on 10 October and running through to Friday 2 December 2016. We will release around 2-3 new ‘things’ each week for you to explore and experiment with. The programme is self-directed and reflective so all participants are encouraged to blog about their experiences of the ‘things’ that we cover.
Anyone can join the programme at any time and dip in and out of topics if you do not have time to do the whole thing but anyone who does blog about all 23 Research Things during the running of the programme will get a shiny certificate at the end plus our eternal gratitude and respect for being so dedicated.
