Successful Writing Workshop for New and Emerging Researchers

Last Monday the NIDL hosted a highly successful full-day writing workshop for people doing research in the area of Digital Learning. This event was open to the sector and specifically targeted new and emerging researchers, and scholar practitioners, currently completing doctoral theses and/or wishing to disseminate their research findings in suitable publications. The workshop attracted 16 people from a number of institutions and was facilitated by Lynn Nygaard of PRIO Institute, Oslo, Norway. The day provided an opportunity to complete a piece of writing, article or conference paper at various stages of development, and we expect to see the fruits of this event in journals, conferences and completed dissertations over the next six months or so. Thanks to Muireann O’Keeffe and Dr Pip Ferguson who took the lead in organising this event and based on feedback from participants, we hope to offer a follow up workshop later in the year.
