ECRN: How to Have an Idea and Keep It
20 February 2017
14:00-16:00, Thurs 16 March
Research Mentoring and Coaching, University of Sheffield
'Fellowship Ahoy!' was a research project based at the University of Sheffield, exploring the development of research career independence and focussing on 5 areas of development for early career researchers aspiring to an academic career. This workshop gives a brief overview of the findings and then focuses on one of these areas — how to have research ideas: where do ideas come from, how do you know your idea is yours, and how can you develop from an initial spark to a project proposal. Participants will have the chance to consider where their ideas come from, and how to make time for creative processes that help to generate and refine ideas? We will also discuss how to work with others to get feedback, and how to negotiate on ownership of research direction.
Run in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Higher Education
