SURE Network COVID-19 Undergraduate Research Project Support Workshop
19th November 2020 from 12:00 – 4:15 PM
With Evidence Synthesis Ireland (ESI)
In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, The SURE Network Curriculum Committee established the SURE Network COVID-19 response team in April 2020. Our core objective has been to support our colleagues in STEM as they transition from supervising final year ‘wet lab’ undergraduate research projects to ‘dry’ lab projects, in response to restricted laboratory access nationwide. We are therefore delighted to announce this virtual event in conjunction with Evidence Synthesis Ireland (ESI).
ESI will deliver a 1 hour seminar on conducting systematic reviews in preclinical studies from 12 – 1PM and registration details for the ESI seminar can be found here.
The COVID-19 response team will then deliver four seminars/workshops through Microsoft teams on the set-up of core alternative project types ranging from research grant style projects to qualitative and survey-based research, before closing with a joint seminar delivered by UK HEA fellows Dr. David Lewis (University of Leeds) and Dr. Gan Shamer (Bath University) on community and education-based research projects.
The links for each workshop and biographies of each of our guest speakers may be found in the November 2020 Workshop Flyer. Attendees are free to drop in and out during the afternoon using these links (no need to register in advance) and there will be an opportunity for questions at the end of each seminar. Seminar recordings and related resources will be made available on the SURE Network website after the event.
Looking forward to seeing you all there,
Dr. Julie Dunne (TUDublin) and Dr. Therese Montgomery (AIT), co-chairs of the SURE Network COVID-19 response team.
