Changing research plans: how to move forward in times of uncertainty is a half-day interactive online training event for PhD students funded by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science. It takes place on the morning of February 10th 2021 (09:00-13:00). The event has been organised by Centre for Social Informatics PhD students Marina Milosheva and Thokozani Kachale.
In acknowledgement that the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact research planning throughout the first half of 2021 (at least), this training course has been designed to encourage PhD students to consider the strategies that they can adapt to ensure that their projects stay on track against this backdrop of change and uncertainty. The main focus is the development of an ‘adaptability skill set’ to stay positive, flexible, and productive. It will cover risk management, resilience, and problem-solving skills.
This training course is open to all doctoral students in the social sciences matriculated at any of the 16 universities in Scotland. Please register through Social at https://social.sgsss.ac.uk/event/changing-research-plans-how-to-move-forward-in-times-of-uncertainty/.
