Building Management Research Capacity: Training Researchers as Trainers

Lead Research Organisation: Cardiff University
Department Name: Cardiff Business School

Abstract

The purpose of this programme of activities is to build and sustain research capacity in UK management and related social science disciplines by meeting the priority need to train management researchers as trainers of research students and other researchers. It forms the 'training trainers' part of a joint plan developed by the aAdvenced Institute of Management Research (AIM) and the British Academy of Management.


The AIM programme has four components:



  • Consultative development of teaching materials on the logic of enquiry that frames the research process and production of outputs

  • Workshop series on research methods course design and teaching

  • Workshop series on teaching selected priority research methods generating potentially publishable outputs - systematic reviewing, critical reviewing, and handling large data sets

  • Workshop series on training in supervision and in mentoring skills. A conception of the logic of enquiry in the social sciences underpins all four components


Academic discourse is viewed as a two-way process of attempting to convince a sceptical audience of one’s own argument about the social world, while adopting a sceptical stance towards others’ arguments. Materials development will employ e-learning as a consultative medium and a means of disseminating the products. The workshop series will be offered in four regional locations.
