R2A Webinar series: ‘A cup of tea with…’ Episode 4

By 13 April 2017

Research to Action’s fourth webinar in the ‘Cup of tea with…’ series will be held on Thursday, 27 April at 14:00 BST.

The webinar will explore the topic of research communications, with a focus on mentoring and facilitating peer learning in the context of developing countries. This month’s chosen project is AuthorAid, a flagship project run by INASP, which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year.

Dilshani Dissanayake from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka participated in an AuthorAid project and will share her experiences of running writing clubs, which aim to facilitate peer learning around research communications and, particularly, to encourage more effective science writing through mentoring.

The format will be concise and participative, starting with a 20-minute discussion between the guest speaker and facilitator, followed by a 10-minute Q&A with the audience.

To sign up for the free webinar register using GoToWebinar and download the software when prompted via email. You can also join the conversation using the hashtag #R2AWebinar across different social media platforms.

The webinar will be recorded, and the video recording, presentation slides, and a text summary will be available after the webinar for those unable to attend.

The webinar series is being held on the last Thursday of every month, with the aim of providing a useful moment of reflection on participants’ previous week of work and any associated uptake-related opportunities or challenges. Find the topics for future webinars in the schedule below.
