Course Description

Process:

Lecture style with interactive group discussions

Aims of the day:

    1. To understand the nature of distressing research and explore the implications for your own research

    2. To identify sources of support and personal coping strategies 

    3. To understand the relationship between methodology and distressing research and explore the importance and practical aspects of reflexivity

 

We propose to cover the following:

     1. Introduce the session

     2. What is distressing research / where it can occur

                -  what could be distressing

                -  what makes things problematic

                -  finding distress in unexpected places

     3. Examples of our own work 

     4. Q&A and comments of what we’ve covered so far

     5. Reflexivity

                -  what it is and examples

     6. Methodological components (i.e. some methods lend themselves easily to reflexivity and other methodologies may require thought on how to account for experiences and bring these in to the research process)

                -  other forms of dissemination (not just thesis and articles, there are other forms of impact)

     7. Identifying mechanisms and support (including making self-care plans)

     8. Q&A and comments/discussion

 

Outcomes:

      1. Course participants will have a basic understanding of the nature of distressing research and will have begun to explore the implications for their own research

      2. Participants will have started to identify sources of support and personal coping strategies which they incorporate into their own self-care plans

      3. Participants will understand the relationship between methodology and distressing research and will have begun to make a personal exploration of the importance and practical aspects of reflexivity


Booking Conditions

Latecomer policy
Researchers should plan to arrive prior to the advertised course start time. Except for exceptional reasons, there will be no admittance to a Graduate School or Faculty Training Programme (FTP) course 15 minutes after the advertised course start time.

 

Importance of booking commitment
When booking on to a Graduate School short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course or if at short notice by emailing pg-training@nottingham.ac.uk). This will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.
It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. The Graduate School maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Graduate School courses and will affect considerations for Graduate School funded opportunities.
