Further Soft Skills Courses from MI

MI has set up some further soft skills courses here https://www.mitalent.ac.uk/News/registrations-now-open-for-two-more-online-courses

Influencing Skills

Whatever your role in the university, influencing will be key to achieving results. For technicians, this includes both formal and informal contacts with fellow staff members and others inside and beyond the institution. This course uses recognised frameworks based on research and practice to take you through effective influencing and negotiating approaches. It also looks at different contexts and how to tailor your approach to the situation in front of you.

Building Confidence

Most of us feel more confident in some areas of our work than others. Technicians may feel that their confidence is challenged in some situations and may want to build confidence to achieve more. This course uses recognised frameworks based on research and practice to help you build confidence and act more assertively at work. It also looks at different contexts and how to tailor your approach to the situation in front of you.

New Research Project: Call for Participants from the Technical Community

Technically Speaking: A new research project to understand the lived experiences of the technical community in UK higher education and research during the Covid-19 pandemic

The Technically Speaking project, conducted by the STEMM-CHANGE team at the University of Nottingham, is collecting narratives of personal experience from technicians during the Covid-19 crisis.

We are asking technicians from UK universities and research institutes to tell us about their experiences during the Covid-19 crisis, from all subject disciplines and from all career levels.

For more information about this research and its role in the wider STEMM-CHANGE project at the University of Nottingham, please email STEMM-CHANGE@nottingham.ac.uk
