Postdoc Academy Course: Being for Beginners new (6 of 6) In progress 15:00 - 16:00 Online / Webinar

Do you sometimes feel worn down or worked up? Would you like to develop habits that help you navigate life with greater confidence and happiness?

This course is designed specifically for researchers to explore tools for enhancing self-awareness, managing stress and unwanted thoughts, and embracing enjoyment and positive change.

It provides guided opportunities to think about:

  • how we relate to our body, thoughts and feelings
  • finding connection with others, nature and time
  • practical ways to change our habits and patterns of thinking.

The six workshops explore concepts from various traditions and provide opportunities for focused self-reflection, enhanced using meditation skills.

These skills are for complete beginners and provide new approaches for those with more experience. No previous experience is required.

Research Integrity 2a: exploring case-studies and best practice [Places] 10:00 - 12:00 Online / Webinar

Researchers are often faced with dilemmas and questions which put their integrity at risk. In these situations, how do you decide what is important for you and how to apply your awareness of good research principles into responsible conduct?

This workshop follows on from the self-taught online research integrity courses. It will provide you with additional resources, facilitate further discussion of the case studies, and explore the questions and challenges you face in your own research work.

Through small group discussion, you will have the chance to reflect on your experience and share best practice with fellow participants.

By the end of the course, you will understand:

  • the core principles and practices of research integrity
  • the difference between research misconduct and questionable research practices
  • the various factors that influence research behaviour and your own responsibilities
  • how researcher responsibilities outlined in the Concordat to Support Research Integrity relate to real-world situations
  • what good research practice means in the context of your own work.

Many believe that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a better predictor of success in the workplace than IQ. The good news is that EQ can be developed and improved over time.

In this two-part interactive workshop, you will gain an understanding of the key skills needed to develop your emotional intelligence – managing your own emotions and the emotions of others.

Through activities and discussions, you’ll reflect on your default behaviour in workplace situations and explore your strengths and areas for further development.

In this first 2-hour session, you will gain insights into:

  • self-awareness: understanding and managing your emotions, recognising triggers, and managing stress
  • self-regulation: developing emotional self-control.

Book a space on part two of this workshop here

Although parts one and two can be attended separately, we recommend participating in both.

After attending this workshop, you will have access to a follow-up coaching session.
