Jon and Karen went to the Research Day held by the OU’s Centre for Education and Educational Technology (CREET). 90 people attended, and topics covered were:
- the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) results
- the future Research Excellence Framework (REF)
- planning and managing research
- possible research themes
The day included a ‘speed-dating’ activity to get to know other people and find out about each others’ research. There were also activities to write dummy ‘press releases’ on research themes.
In May CREET will be holding a workshop on ‘improving your publications’.
