We want to hear YOUR views on training. Are you struggling to find high-quality online resources? Looking forward to some live sessions to break the boredom? Fed up of training altogether? Whatever your thoughts are, we'd love to hear them.

Following the lockdown, the way we offer training has changed radically and we want to make sure that we are still meeting your needs. Come along for an informal chat with colleagues from Researcher Development and Cambridge University Libraries to help shape our programmes for the next academic year and beyond.

This is also a chance for you to reflect on your professional development and discuss it with other students and with experts. You will hear how other PhD students from a variety of disciplines approach their professional development. You will also find out more about what training opportunities exist at Cambridge.

None of us is as smart as all of us - how the Data Champions network helped us learn and succeed new [Places] 13:00 - 13:45 Office of Scholarly Communication Online Webinar

The majority of professional learning happens on the job, especially where colleagues with different skill sets come together to achieve common goals. Productive relationships between academics, administrators and service providers are crucial to enabling the flow of information and skills to benefit all parties. This exchange can be facilitated by professional networks, which provide not only formal learning, but also opportunities to collaborate and learn from each other.

In this talk you will hear about the experience of two librarians, Charlotte Smith and River Cronin, who made the most of the Data Champions network (https://www.data.cam.ac.uk/intro-data-champions): how they set up a collaboration with researchers, what they achieved through it, and what they learnt in the process.

The talk will be useful to anyone thinking of joining or setting up a network, as well as current members of professional networks who are looking for new ways to challenge themselves. We hope you will be inspired to discover ways in which collaborating with diverse colleagues may provide unusual opportunities for your development and professional success.
