Pop-Up IAD for researchers

About the Pop-Up training from IAD - a new initiative for researchers at the University of Edinburgh.

Although we've successfully moved most of our training provision online, we recognise that the current situation is making additional demands on the University's researchers. This led us to start the "Pop-Up IAD" on March 19th.  It’s growing into a library of online training and resources:

The library includes short workshops on a range of topics including:

  • Career planning
  • Resilience
  • Fellowships
  • Productivity

Every session has a dedicated blog post with a recording of the session, supporting materials and useful links.

How to find out more and book

The sessions are bookable through the MyEd events booking section, and listed on our “at a glance” summary of workshops:
