HGS-HIRe Basic Course I: Making an Impact as an Effective Researcher (B1 online)

The first course in the HGS-HIRe series of transferable skills training will focus on building the core skills required to make a strong personal impact in the work place and to be able to contribute effectively when working in teams. The course will help raise awareness about individual preferences and their impact of others. It will explore how an individual can use their strengths to most effect, whether they are presenting to an audience of academics or working in a cross disciplinary research team. Participants will also have the opportunity to work in a number of teams and gain feedback on their impact and performance.

For registration or in case of confirmation of an earlier pre-registration for this course, please send a brief email to info[at]hgs-hire.de as soon as possible.
