Breaking the Mould Series – Webinar 3 Research and Policy

Wednesday, 22 November 2017

The breaking the mould series is a new series of webinars for new and early career researchers. They provide a space to be inspired by the way in which people use new and original research, and start discussions ahead of the SRHE Newer Researchers Conference  on the 5th December 2017: http://srhe.ac.uk/conference2017/newer-researchers-conference.asp 

This is the third, and final, of three-monthly webinars in the run up to the conference, and focuses on discussing the role of research and policy.

Two speakers will discuss the way in which research and policy can come together to shape innovation in higher education, reflecting on their own experiences and careers.  This is followed by our newer researcher’s spotlight, allowing a PhD student to share their current research, and reflect on the ways their research could respond to the theme and discussion of each webinar. 

This Month’s webinar includes:

Dr Tony Strike
is University Secretary and Director of Strategy and Governance, at the University of Sheffield, chair of the Russell Group’s Directors of Strategy and Planning, and a member of the national executive board of HESPA (the Higher Education Strategic Planners Association). Tony’s talk will reflect on his career, and the role HE researches plays in shaping and responding to Policy.

Dr Harriet Dunbar-Morris
is Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience) at the University of Portsmouth. Harriet’s talk discusses the use of research in policy and leadership roles.
