Professional development for researchers
Researcher Connect is a professional development course that focuses on the development of excellent communication skills for international and multicultural contexts. The aim is to enhance the productivity of individual researchers and, in turn, provide universities and research institutions with a competitive advantage in the fast-moving international research environment.
Why choose Researcher Connect?
Previously delivered across the globe and consistent positive feedbacks, the course is offered as a series of modules, varying from Academic Writing, Digital Researcher, to Presenting with Impact. It is delivered through a face-to-face workshop format by experienced and quality-assured trainers. Researchers with strong communication skills are more likely to:
- publish in international journals
- successfully promote their research and represent their institutions at conferences
- gain funding from international bodies
- effectively communicate with the wider public and policy makers
- build international collaborations to further their research.
British Council and the Office of Higher Education Office (OHEC) are launching the Researcher Connect 2019, a three-day workshop to provide early-career lecturers with the insights, understanding and tools to communicate effectively.
