ARU hosted for the second time a team from Professors Without Boarders-PROWIBO for the 2018 summer school. Andrew H Bell, Ph.D., FHEA from the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford facilitated a staff development workshop aimed at promoting scientific research at ARU.
The objective for this workshop was to provide the staff, who are already heavily involved in research, a background in how scientific publishing works and how best to increase their research output and share their ideas with the world.
A combination of short lectures, discussion groups, and small group discussions were used to develop and enhance research ideas.”
Staff covered topics such as ‘designing and implementing scientific experiments’, ‘applying for external funding’, ‘preparing a scientific manuscript and the academic publication process’, and finally ‘ research ethics’.
