Tricks of the Trade with Carey Jewitt: Developing your research identity

10am to 12pm, Friday, 30 November 2018
Ground Floor Meeting Room, Office of the Vice-Provost (Research), UCL, 2 Taviton Street, London, WC1H 0BT

A challenge facing early career researchers is how to develop your research identity: - Evolving your research identity whilst working as part of a team on a research project - Balancing being focused on specific research areas and methods with being flexible in your research career - Creating a coherent narrative across your early research career, multiple projects and research outputs

- Participating in and building community, collaborations and networks

- Developing an independent research identity: becoming a Co-I or PI

In this talk Carey Jewitt will discuss these issues in relation to her own career and experience and help participants think about their current challenges and future career plans.

Carey Jewitt is Professor of Technology and Learning, Culture Communication and Media Department and Director, UCL Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, UCL.
