It has been a busy year for Research Bites. 165 people have attended the sessions in person, with many more watching online. This year we have added sessions on Research Ethics, and Engagement, and have seen spikes of interest in the following sessions:
- Achieving impact with social media (Jacqueline Young, Impact Officer, Research & Enterprise Services)
- CV Tips for PhDs (Kathryn Morey-Scarfe & Jo Hobbs, Careers & Employment Advisors, Careers)
- How to write a good justification of resources for a research application (Andrew Wilkinson, Research Development Officer, Research & Enterprise Services)
- Get better at literature searching* (Tanya Williamson, Academic Liaison Librarian, Library) *very quiet recording
Many thanks to all of the fantastic presenters who have delivered such a wide range of informative sessions over the last academic year. Research Bites would be nothing without you! Every single session has provided new information, and a forum for informal Q&As and discussion among the research community here at Lancaster University.
If you have missed any sessions we keep the most recent recording in the Recordings Archive. Unfortunately, not every session has been recorded. Please feel free to contact presenters to ask for any follow up information.
This year we have experimented with broadcasting the sessions via live stream. This has been mostly successful, with participants tuning in who would otherwise have missed out. Thanks to everyone for their patience during the technical hitches, and all the support from Stephen Owens, ISS. If you would like to tell us about your live stream experience – good or bad – please get in touch.
Research Bites in 2017-18
Research Bites is going to have a break while we plan how to continue the format. We look forward to returning as soon as we can.
