Engineering: MBTI Workshop new Tue 16 Sep 2014   14:00 Finished

The post-doc committee is proud to present this workshop for research staff, to be held in LR 11 on Tuesday 16th of September, 2-5.30pm.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used personality instrument worldwide, based on over 50 years’ research and development. It presents a framework for understanding yourself and others and how you can use that understanding to develop personally and our relationships with others.

This workshop is run by Katie Hewitt, a qualified MBTI practitioner, and will include:

  • completion of the MBTI questionnaire
  • investigating the four areas of preference covered by MBTI
  • self-assessment of type with group exercises
  • looking at your best fit type and investigating how it could help you at work.

Learning about your personality type can help you to understand your role within your team and the role of others. It can also help you to cope with organisational change, deal with stress effectively and develop your emotional intelligence.

This briefing covers managing publication lists, Open Access requirements and funding, copyright issues and about how the library can support your teaching and research within the Department of Engineering.

The session will focus particularly on how we can use images within lecture materials online and provide tips and tricks for ensuring that uploaded materials comply with copyright requirements.
