ECR Activities and Initiatives in 2017
ECR Symposium - Monday 30th October
2017 will once again see the return of the MNHS ECR Symposium. Planning has already commenced for a full day of Professional Development talks and Networking opportunities with ECR's throughout the Faculty.
A 'Save the Date' flyer will be circulated soon.
Information and Resources for New ECR's
It has been brought to our attention that new ECR's often just "bumble" their way through when learning about what support the Faculty and University can offer them. To address this we have created new online presentations specifically designed for new ECR's (but which may also be useful to current staff).
The four modules are;
Welcome to the Faculty (general introductory information)
How to Apply for Grants
Ethics Information - Do I need ethics and how do I get it?
All you need to know about HDR students.
These are all available on the ECR Gateway site.
Online Professional Development Activities
Whilst we endeavour to run face-to-face Professional Development activities that are accessible and relevant to all ECR's in our Faculty there are times when this is just not possible or you are unable to attend.
We now have a range of Online Professional Development Activities from external providers available on the ECR Gateway website which can be undertaken in your own time.
Don't forget there are recordings of many of the Professional Development sessions that are run by the Faculty Research Office. The University also offers many Professional Development sessions throughout the year which can be viewed here.
