The Hive Scholars have been busy organising our schedule of events for researchers and we’ve got lots to fit in before the end of the academic year! Below are some dates for your diaries – do comment below or get in touch via email if you want more information.
Shut Up and Write – April 9th, 3.00pm, Library Cafe
Continuing our successful series of shut up and write sessions – helping you get writing done and beat procrastination through positive peer pressure.
How to Organise an Academic Conference – April 18th, 11am, Fulton 202
Organising research events is a great addition to an academic CV, but it can seem time consuming and stressful. In this workshop a panel of experienced Sussex conference organisers will answer your questions, and share their knowledge and tips for every stage of the process: from assembling your team, to devising your concept, promotion, time management, practicalities, and more. There will also be advice on how to put together a successful application for the Doctoral School Researcher Led Initiative fund. Refreshments provided. Booking essential – book here.
Researcher wellbeing walk – May 3rd, meet in Falmer courtyard at 3.00pm
Following the success of the first wellbeing walk in Stanmer Park, the hive scholars are organising a second excursion. A chance to get away from your computer, meet other researchers, and see the beautiful landscape on our doorstep, in (hopefully) warmer spring weather. The walk will, of course, conclude in the pub.
Viva Survivors – May 21st, Research Hive, time TBC
A chance to hear from scholars from a range of disciplines who recently took their PhD Viva exam and lived to tell the tale. Discuss tips and strategies for preparation and handling questions.
A finally, we are planning an end of year picnic and games afternoon in June. In addition we will be seeking your feedback on the Hive 2012-13, so keep your eyes peeled for more details.
