'Good Research: Sharing Experience' is an informal monthly meet up to discuss the ethics and concerns that arise in our research and wider academic experience. It provides a forum for bringing together staff, postdocs and doctoral students in GeoSciences (and beyond) to share experiences, propose solutions and thus do good research.

Sessions will take place alternate months in Kings Buildings and Drummond Street during semester 1 and 2 (only). Topics will be introduced by a speaker and followed by open discussion. Free tea, coffee and cake is provided!

“We academics should collectively talk to each other more about how we actually spend our time…rather than presenting ourselves as the overachieving writing robots whom most systems of assessment seem designed to reward…Such exchanges are a way of pooling our resources, of collectively identifying the conditions conducive to doing good work” Berg & Seeber (2017) The Slow Professor. Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy.
