Bookings are open for the 7th annual Researcher Education and Development Scholarship (REDS) online conference, hosted by the University of Leeds on Thursday 14 October.
The conference will explore how inclusive research cultures can be developed and includes the keynote presentation ‘Imagining a possible inclusive future for researchers’ by Dr Jessica Gagnon (University of Strathclyde).
The conference is free to attend and is suitable for all interested in the Scholarship of Researcher Development.
The 2021 REDS conference will explore the following questions:
- How can personal and professional development for researchers impact upon change in research culture?
- How do we develop and support agents and drivers of change across all the stages of a research career?
- What role is played in change, by those working in the professional development of researchers? How do we provide strategic support for the development of ‘behaviours, values, expectations, attitudes and norms’ for researchers?
- What lessons can be learnt from online working? Which approaches help to create more inclusive environments?
