Researcher Connect Workshop

The British Council and the Professional Development and Engagement Centre for Karaganda and Karaganda oblast at E. A. Buketov Karaganda State University are holding a Researcher Connect workshop. The three-day workshop aims to help researchers to improve communication skills to support them in engaging with both local and international audiences. The workshop will be held on 28, 29 and 30 November 2017 at E. A. Buketov Karaganda State University.

Researcher Connect is a series of short interactive learning modules for researchers at any stage of their career and from any academic discipline. It is a professional development course that focuses on the development of excellent communication skills in international, multi-cultural contexts.

In an increasingly competitive and global market, researchers and the institutions they represent need to communicate their research to an international audience. Key communications skills are required to enable researchers to publish in international journals, present at international conferences, apply for funding from national and international bodies, and build international collaborations to further their research.

The workshop will be attended by 20 researchers from universities and research institutions in Karaganda and the surrounding regions. The participants will build skills of promoting their research through effective abstracts writing and persuasive proposals, understanding their audience and achieving greater impact through academic collaboration with local and international scholars. As a result, the participants’ organizations will improve the quality of research as well as international reputation and ranking.

Jim Buttery, Director of the British Council Kazakhstan, said: “This is part of a new six month investment from the UK Government in strengthening capability in higher education research across three countries of the Central Asia region: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. An enhanced culture of research is critical for the future competitiveness of the region and an important precursor to new partnerships with UK universities.”
