Active Bystander new Thu 20 Jun 2019   10:30 [Places]

Have you ever been concerned about a situation affecting someone else at work and wanted to help, but didn't because “Everyone else seems to think it’s ok” or “Nothing will change anyway”? Have you ever heard a racist/sexist/homophobic joke in the tea room and felt uncomfortable? Watched a colleague wince at being belittled or interrupted in a team meeting and wished you could help? Seen an inappropriate touch of a friend and felt bad for them? You're not alone, we are all observers and bystanders simply by being at work.

Come along to this short session to find out why this happens and what it means to be an active bystander. This includes simple changes and actions we can learn to use to support others around us and, over time, create a respectful and inclusive environment for all of us to live and work in.

FS6 Time Management Self-taught Not bookable

A better grasp of your time management and knowledge of associated tools and techniques can make you more effective in your research, and can help you achieving more in fewer hours. This online course will take you through theory and exercises to allow you to try things out and make practical changes in your research life. The materials are written for researchers in Cambridge, and can be taken at your own pace so you can work through them, whatever your current time management practices are.

How to Access the Course

In order to enrol for The Time Management Toolkit, you will need an enrolment key: SPST-sas17 You can access the course and enrol at the following link: https://www.vle.cam.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=128701

FS7 Skills Analysis Course new Self-taught Not bookable

The Skills Analysis Survey is an online module designed to help you to assess your own skill-set and identify target areas for improvement. This is really the basis upon which you should plan all of your researcher development, so it is a highly recommended course for all postgraduate students! We encourage students to take the survey about once a year, but it’s particularly useful for those who are just starting their PhD and for those who are just entering the final year of their PhD. The online course, hosted on Moodle includes:

  • A Skills Analysis Survey to help you assess your own skillset
  • A Self-Reflection Exercise to help you consider your answers to the survey
  • Useful information on managing your personal development, training courses within the University, and other skill development opportunities.

A thorough awareness of issues relating to research ethics and research integrity are essential to producing excellent research.

This focus group aims to improve on what we currently offer.

What do we hope to find out? 1. To establish the priority topics for Research Integrity training 2. To identify which areas of Research Integrity and Ethics training are not currently adequately covered 3. Establish how to service the differing training needs 4. To find out which types of training courses are best offered centrally and which are best delivered locally

Lunch is provided.
