New PGR Events April – June 2014 – beginning with ‘Collaboration’

We have a new line-up of half-day events to offer postgraduate researchers starting with Collaboration on the 2nd of April delivered by Dr Peter Kahn.The session aims to increase your awareness of the importance of collaborative working to your research, and to careers within higher education. It will further look to develop your understanding of the nature of collaborative working in this setting, and explore practical ways for you to engage in and initiate processes of joint decision making and action.

Peter Kahn is a member of the Educational Development Team and has active research interests in relation to professional learning, continuing professional development and research-led learning. His interests take in collaborative working, academic development, learning theory, reflective practice, professionalism in medical education, widening participation and academic writings skills.
