RAD Network Meeting – 15 September 2015

What a fantastic attendance to our RAD Meeting, and not surprising given the great topics we had on offer.

After a quick bite on some oh-so-yummy bakery fresh Danishes (seriously yum!) we settled in to listen to the engaging Yasmin Shaheem from Central Library with an introduction to ORCID. Yasmin provided an overview of what ORCID is, why it is a great resource, a little bit on a recent pilot program Flinders ran to test the waters and a snap shot look at how to access the ORCID sign in from the REPORTAL page. Have a look over Yasmine’s PowerPoint presentation where you will also find the ORCID sign up/sign in link. ORCID @ Flinders (PPT 4MB)

Next we meet some of the lovely Grants Finance team, that seemingly ubiquitous team who are integral to so much of the work our members do. Sue Willmott  lead the charge with an overview of the team structure, their mission, roles, and a few new tips and tools for those who use the Finance System interface. Have a look at the presentation slides and if you have any questions I know that they would love to hear from you. Grants Finance presentation (PPTX 176KB)

Finally we finished with an update from the Chair of our Primary Data Management Working Group, Marja van Breda. Marja recapped on the composition of the Working Group and told the RAD members about the work they have undertaken so far in identifying key gaps in current process, highlighting some current strengths, focusing on collective needs and mapping out where the group is going from here with its current drafting of the guidelines.  Primary Data Management Workgroup update (PPTX 69KB)

Stay tuned for some upcoming professional development training, special ARMS Conference review meeting and a lunch think tank to start looking at what we might like to consider for the 2016 RAD Network Program.  


RAD Network Meeting - 30 September 2014

At the RAD Network meeting held 30 September 2014 we were fortunate to hear from two of our own RAD members about their presentations to the recent ARMS conference in Canberra.

Flinders University Researcher Mentoring Scheme

First of all Marina Delpin provided a summary of her presentation to the ARMS conference on Flinders University Researcher Mentoring Scheme. Due to the fact the Mentoring Program is a commercial scheme we will not be uploading the full PowerPoint presentation Marina delivered in order to respect IP rights, but the abstract from the ARMS 2014 Conference is copied below for your information.

If you would like to learn more about this please feel free to contact Dr Marina Delpin or visit the here.

The Flinders University Researcher Mentoring Scheme – an inclusive one-year program delivering high impact outcomes

Dr Marina W. Delpin

This presentation will provide information on the establishment of the Early Career Researcher (ECR) Mentoring Scheme at Flinders University and its aims and objectives. The scheme is open to all Flinders staff – including our Adelaide campuses, South Australian regional locations and interstate campuses, including the Northern Territory. I will outline the scheme’s structure and how other institutions could benefit from this type of program. With the scheme now in its third year, we are continuing to understand the changing needs and requirements of our ECRs, as well as our mentees’ successes directly stemming from the program. The nature of the one-on-one mentoring partnerships will be discussed as well as the benefits and outcomes reported by our ECR participants and their mentors.

Short & Sharp – Effective Communication

Following Marina we heard from Pam Smith.  Pam presented to the ARMS Conference on the development, delivery and evolution of the highly successful “Short & Sharp” program run in the School of Nursing and Midwifery. These weekly 30 minute presentations have grown from Frequently Asked Question presentations to become dynamic and engaging forums that have attracted professional, research and post docs eagerly use to communicate to their colleagues. See the full PowerPoint presentation below and if you are inspired to begin something like this in your area then Pam or Wendy Green would be more than happy to chat with you about how they made this such a success.
