Careful reflection and planning in relation to research ethics should not only benefit participants but enhance the quality of the research undertaken.BU recognises the importance of maintaining public confidence in the ethical quality of research conducted by staff and students of the University.The following are the main milestones during a postgraduate research degree - you can find more information about all of these stages in the Code of Practice for Research Degrees (pdf 2.6mb) You will find further details about this stage, as well as all the forms you require, on Research PAD, which you can access using your student ID and login once you have registered.
The presented dissertations of seven students is going to be recognised with an opportunity (or perhaps privilege, depending on ones’ epistemological stance) to publish with their supervisors in the ‘Journal of Promotional Communications’.
The closing remarks by Dr Richard Scullion, not only offered the imagination-capturing summary of the conference, but also the demonstration of how to whole-heartedly embrace AI technology, and to be “one step-ahead-of-the-future”.
As well as presenting their work, students did a great job discussing and defending arguments put forward.
The conference presentations were accompanied by a lively discussion during the launch and coffee breaks.
Students, lovely parents and friends such as Liam Toms, who simply can’t get enough of CMC, enjoyed the conference, as it was well put together thanks to organisational skills of Dr Chris Miles and Dr Jill Nash.
Dr Pawel Surowiec and Dr Andrew Kear were conference co-organisers.Looking forward to our annual Systematic Review Masterclass at Bournemouth University which will be starting tomorrow February 14th.This year for the first time we have renamed it a ‘Systematic Review to Inform Clinical Practice’ as it is not only a free-standing masterclass but also a level 7 unit of Continuing Professional Development and Training .This year’s student dissertation conference was chaired by Dr Jill Nash.The event was opened by a key note from Adam Greenwood, the CEO of Greenwood Campbell, a technology-focused creative agency based in Bournemouth.The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) provides funds health and care research and helps to translate new discoveries into practical improvements for patients.This pathway is designed to help staff considering applying to one of NIHR’s funding schemes.Postgraduate research degrees do not involve any taught elements which means the process for completing this kind of qualification - as opposed to a taught course like a Master’s - is very different.There are several milestones throughout a postgraduate research degree, with each stage designed to assess and hone your research project and develop the skills required to help you produce a strong thesis. This pathway provides information, advice and guidance about the Research Councils, including how to approach the case for support, writing your impact statement and working with stakeholders.This pathway explores international funding activities, concentrating on particular regions of the world, as highlighted via the BU Global Engagement Strategy.
