Research training and workshops

Research staff  

The University runs an extensive staff development programme: Research and Innovation Staff Development Programme (RISDP).  This programme provides professional skills and career development workshops and events for research and academic staff. It brings together many workshops and events, all of which take place during the academic year.  You can attend whichever sessions you like to create your own programme which is tailored to your needs.  RISDP is taught by experts from across the University and also by external speakers. Staff from the Research Outputs team teach the sessions on RISDP relating to open access publishing and research data.  

Research students

The Graduate School runs a graduate development programme, specifically designed to assist you throughout your research project and help launch your academic careers. The Library also teaches several sessions on the graduate development programme, for example about open access publishing. 

Undergraduate students

The Librarians run many teaching sessions throughout the year for groups of undergraduate students. These are arranged by your department and you will be informed when you have one scheduled.  

In addition to the scheduled training sessions, you can get in contact at any time, for example to book 1-2-1 sessions with a librarian.  It may also be possible to arrange 'one-off' group workshops to address specific needs.
