The British Council is pleased to announce a call for applications to participate in a Researcher Connect workshop in Almaty. 

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. You can find more information about Researcher Connect on the programme website.

The workshop will cover two modules: 

Digital Researcher Academic writing
This module helps develop participants’ abilities using digital tools with confidence to enhance their academic careers. The module will detail strategies for using social media to enable research to be more discoverable, more highly cited and achieve more impact.

This module uses the Researcher Connect approach to critically analyse the essentials of academic writing, and identify, critique and develop each learner’s own writing style through acquisition of tactics, tools and relevant language techniques

The workshop will be led by international education consultant, Tara Mitchell, who was involved in creating the content for these modules. 

We are inviting applications from researchers from Almaty and Almaty region to participate in the two-day workshop, which will be held in Almaty on 6-7 March 2018
