A Multi-Year Faculty Development Partnership
We are excited to begin our multi-year collaboration with the UK Research Network (UKRN) to deliver a series of faculty development workshops to instructors at member institutions under the auspices of a grant to the UKRN from the Research England Development Fund. Beginning in June 2023, Project TIER will deliver its first workshop at the University of Sheffield (see below). Project TIER will deliver an additional 12 workshops through 2026 via in-person and virtual means in support of the UKRN's Open Research Programme.
Upcoming Partner Events:
The UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN) is a national peer-led consortium that aims to ensure the UK retains its place as a centre for world-leading research. We do this by investigating the factors that contribute to robust research, promoting training activities, and disseminating best practice. We also work collaboratively with various external stakeholders to ensure coordination of efforts across the sector.
We seek to understand the factors that contribute to poor research reproducibility and replicability, and develop approaches to counter these, in order to improve the trustworthiness and quality of research. These issues affect all disciplines, so we aim for broad disciplinary representation. We believe that ongoing efforts to address these issues represent an opportunity to improve our research by reforming culture and practice.
UKRN is coordinated by a Steering Group and supported by an Advisory Board, with representation across the UK through researcher-led local networks at several institutions, many of which have formally joined UKRN.
