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