Researcher Development

Making the most of conferences

Conferences are events at which academics share their research and find out about current research topics in their field. ‘Delegates’ is a term you will probably come across. It refers to all attendees of a conference, not just the speakers. This online course will give you a complete guide to academic conferences from their purpose to preparation, presenting and networking.
