How do I use this calendar?

You can click on an event to display further information about it.

The toolbar above the calendar has buttons to view different events. Use the left and right arrow icons to view events in the past and future. The button inbetween returns you to today's view. The button to the right of this shows a mini-calendar to let you quickly jump to any date.

The dropdown box on the right allows you to see a different view of the calendar, such as an agenda or a termly view.

If this calendar has tags, you can use the labelled checkboxes at the top of the page to select just the tags you wish to view, and then click "Show selected". The calendar will be redisplayed with just the events related to these tags, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

Researcher Development Online- How to respond to feedback (Writing Series)

Postgraduate work can often leave you feeling confused and isolated. Lots of people want to give you advice, but who are they and how should you respond to their comments? This workshop opens by discussing the benefits of feedback you might receive from a range of people. You will then explore how to understand and use different types of feedback. You will also be asked to reflect on the feedback you have received so far.

Researcher Development Online- Peer Review

Peer review

This workshop is tailored to PGRs in the STEM disciplines. STEM is an academic term that refers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - and includes disciplines in the life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, mathematics, computer science, and the health sciences.

In this session, we explore the principles and benefits of peer editing. In doing so, we intend to look at four main aspects of writing: mechanics, grammar, cohesion and coherence and we will use these as a 'way in' to peer review. As part of this session, we will also practice writing short reviews of a piece of peer-edited writing: this process involves effective deployment of pragmatics (e.g., using suitably tactful language which allows 'constructive' criticism to be provided to another writer). This session will be useful for PGRs who are currently working on a piece of writing for which they would welcome feedback. For this session, participants must bring along a piece of their writing and be prepared to share it with others.
