Researchers from NCRM would like to gain input from UK-based PhD students or early-career researchers (defined as within five years of commencing academic employment) on the teaching and learning of advanced research methods.

The discussion pages provide an opportunity for you to comment on brief summaries of four themes from the research findings;

  • challenges for learning advanced methods,
  • provision of advanced methods training,
  • approaches for teaching advanced methods,
  • qualities of advanced methods teachers and learners.

You are invited to post comments on many themes as you choose, which could take between 5 and 20 minutes of your time.

The project researchers will also take part in this dialogue and you are invited to re-visit the discussion as it develops.

These pages will remain live until Friday 18th April, 2014.

This research is being conducted by Melanie Nind, Rose Wiles, and Daniel Kilburn at the University of Southampton.

See the NCRM website for more information and to participate.
