Research is complex and requires a wide range of skills. This course will introduce some of the skills required to carry out research successfully.

The course is offered remotely in two 2 day modules. The gap between the modules is intended to allow you time to use and develop the skills taught during days 1 and 2, and to spend time developing a research question and start to formulate a proposal.

Module 1 will be run online, and Module 2 will be in-person. Participants must attend both modules in order to complete the course:

Module dates are as follows:

Module 1 – 30 September & 1 October 2024 (Online)
Module 2 – 21 & 22 November 2024 (In-person)

All sessions incorporate mixed learning methods, including live remote lectures, discussion and practical exercises.  The searching the literature session is hands-on, giving you the opportunity to use the databases and undertake a small search during the workshop. The statistics session is very practical and apart from basic maths you would learn at school, makes no assumptions about prior statistical knowledge.
