Title: Developing your teaching-research nexus: Identity, performance & methodologies


For early and mid-career researchers (ECR & MCR), balancing the priorities of research and teaching is challenging. Forming a healthy teaching and research nexus helps us meet this challenge. Success, however, often involves trial and error. We can avoid some knockbacks, though, by engaging with colleagues who have succeeded at establishing and sustaining a healthy T-R nexus.

In this session of THETRN, panellists will reflect upon experiences, offer advice, and answer questions about developing a healthy, sustainable relationship between teaching and research. The session is organised around three key topics in the T-R nexus: identity, performance, and methodologies. We begin by discussing different intentions in forming a T-R nexus, and how intentions shape and sustain professional identities. We then discuss practical concerns for ECR and MCR staff, including workflow modelling and identifying useful tools and resources to enhance performance. We conclude with a discussion on how to evaluate whether a given methodology will allow us to perform efficiently and effectively in the T-R space.

About the series

The series will also feature a panel of experts from across the university discussing a range of issues at the nexus of teaching and research. The sessions will be presented bi-monthly over a period of 6 sessions. They will be recorded and shared online afterwards.
