Foundations of Research Development
NORDP 2018 Annual Research Development Conference
Foundations of Research Development: An Introduction
At this year’s National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP) conference, there will be a special pre-conference workshop called Foundations of Research Development: An Introduction.
This short course (8 hours) is intended for new research development (RD) professionals (i.e., those with fewer than three years of experience in RD), or for individuals who are considering becoming RD professionals. This course is an introduction to RD; it will provide a theoretical and practical grounding in RD for individuals who are newer to the profession or who are considering joining it.
Other interesting pre-conference workshops are:
- Enhancing Effectiveness of Collaborative Teams by Engaging Individual Motivation
- Large Proposals 101
- Taking the Research Development Professional to the Next Level through Effective Mentoring
- Strengthening Capacity for Diverse Research Teams through Research Development
- Understanding the Name of the Game: Inside a National Science Foundation (NSF) Panel Review
The conference will take place May 7-9, 2018, in Arlington, Virginia. The pre-conference workshops will be offered on May 7.
