Event Type

The BAICE ECR Day is scheduled to be held Monday 2nd September 1pm – 6:30pm and is open for attendees of the conference and others who might not attend the conference.

Activities for the 2024 edition will include:

  • COMPARE workshop
  • Roundtable discussion
  • Speed mentoring and
  • Socials

The workshop will be facilitated by Prof Catherine Montgomery, one of the current Compare Editors. Prof Montgomery is based in the School of Education at Durham University, UK and she also supports the Compare Fellowship scheme which is funded by BAICE. The writing workshop was developed by Prof Anna Robinson-Pant and Dr Anna Magyar and it is linked to the Compare writing mentoring programme for new academics, which has been running for over 10 years.

Through comparing published research articles with the theses on which they are based, we will identify how the authors have used their research data in order to:

  • speak to different audiences
  • contribute to academic ‘conversations’
  • meet different journal criteria.

During the workshop we will:

  • look at key features of academic research articles
  • discuss the process of developing a paper or papers, based on your thesis
  • look at the process of submitting a paper to peer-reviewed journals
  • discuss alternative ways of publishing/dissemination with a focus on the COMPARE podcast and storytelling.

The Roundtable discussion will comprise of a diverse group of academics who will respond to questions pertaining to Careers Within and Beyond Academia. We will conclude with Speed Mentoring and Socials where academics will offer mentoring in a more informal setting.

The BAICE ECR Day is open to all attending the BAICE conference and others who might not attend. It is free of charge, but places are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis (for those whose applications meet the criteria).
