The LDC is delighted to be hosting the first ‘Your Voice – PGR Conference’ which will take place on 1-2 April in the University’s South Campus Teaching Hub.
The Conference includes contributions from postgraduate researchers from across the University, who will introduce a wide variety of topics of interest to the research community. The topics include:
- The PhD journey; the challenges encountered by the presenters and the solutions they found
- Specific opportunities undertaken during the PhD, including public engagement, fieldwork, public engagement and teaching
- Subject related talks where presenters will summarise their specific research projects. Their topics span all faculties of the University, from Cell migration to Artificial Intelligence, from Chinese women’s representation in Hollywood cinema to Dementia care and from Lasers to the needs for Utopias.
The Conference also includes two discussion-focussed sessions at the end of each day. The first explores the University’s approach to climate change and sustainability and the second will focus on teaching experiences as a demonstrator and the skills required to teach well.
Come and get to know about the opportunities and challenges your peers have experienced. Their stories might open doors to new opportunities!
This Conference offers a great opportunity to practice your ‘conference skills’, develop your networking skills, ask questions, or simply see how Conferences work! It is a rare opportunity to meet and learn about research and research practice beyond your Faculty. Discover how much have you got in common and how research practice can vary across disciplines.
LDC Team will be there to support all our speakers and attendees! Refreshments and lunch throughout the day will be available. For further information for Your Voice PGR conference, please click here.
