'Good Research: Sharing Experience' is an informal monthly meet up to discuss the ethics and concerns that arise in our research and wider academic experience. It provides a forum for bringing together staff, postdocs and doctoral students in GeoSciences (and beyond) to share experiences, propose solutions and thus do good research.
Topics will be introduced by a speaker and followed by open discussion. Free tea, coffee and cake is provided!
“We academics should collectively talk to each other more about how we actually spend our time…rather than presenting ourselves as the overachieving writing robots whom most systems of assessment seem designed to reward…Such exchanges are a way of pooling our resources, of collectively identifying the conditions conducive to doing good work” Berg & Seeber (2017) The Slow Professor. Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy.
Please do consider coming along and sharing your experiences. If you would like to propose a topic for future sessions please do get in touch with Sam Staddon firstname.lastname@example.org
