Introducing Vitae’s RDF and the RDF Planner
This workshop will introduce you to Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework, a valuable resource for researchers to identify and articulate their development needs and to plan their development as a researcher based on their career aspirations and project needs
Building and Expanding Your Bibliography
Finding out about previous research, and writing a literature review, are key aspects of your study. This session shows you how to develop a search strategy which will ensure you find the information you need in a structured way, saving you time in the long run. By the end of the session, you will know how to use all aspects of the Library Catalogue and Library Search, including how to access and search generic e-databases provided by the University, as well as how to find and use resources elsewhere.
This session will introduce you to key bibliographic resources and enable you to construct and manage your reference list and keep it up-to-date. Preparing for publication and establishing an online profile will also be covered.
Research Approaches and Design
This workshop will get you think about how to design your study effectively in order to answer your research question(s) or test your hypotheses. It also provides you with the skills needed to plan your research project, drawing on tools from project management.
Planning Your Research Project and Research Data Management
This workshop provides you with the skills needed to plan your research project, drawing on tools from project management. This workshop explores the legal and ethical requirements for a researcher in collecting, storing and curating their research data. It also provides some guidance on the options available for researchers to manage their data.
This session will examine how you as a researcher should conduct yourself with integrity. It will examine the expectations of a researcher, what constitutes good conduct but also what constitutes misconduct. It will then move on to look in more detail at the specific theme of ethics in research both practically – how do you gain approval for your project? – but also philosophically.
