FGR PhD Workshop: Threshold concepts in learning to be a researcher

In this workshop we will examine different understandings of research, the concepts that underpin them and ways such understandings can influence candidates' and supervisors' approaches to research.

Following this workshop participants are expected to have:

  • an understanding of different conceptions of research
  • an appreciation of the role of Threshold Concepts (such as theory and theorising) in learning to be a researcher
  • strategies that might help them address these "troublesome" concepts
