The Researcher Skills workshop is coming to Palo Alto. We're bringing together groups of researchers who are interested in reflecting on their craft, learning and growing. In this 2-hour workshop, we discuss specific challenges in doing the work, map out past project experience, and evaluate skills and career progression with tools developed by the ResearchOps Community.
It's also an opportunity for us to give back. We'll collect some of the workshop output data and send it back to the ResearchOps community. They'll clean up and open-source all of the researcher skills data, and gather a project team together to publish a well-informed skills framework that researchers everywhere can use as a guide for growth and career progression.
The workshop is open to anyone with hands-on experience doing research. Participants without professional research experience will be unable to complete some of the activities and have a hard time getting into the materials, which start by reflecting on specific working experiences and creating productive discussion about the work.
