LNG:ECR Seminar & Networking Evening (June 2022)

June 7, 2022 @ 15:50 20:00

The final seminar of the LNG:ECR series on Starting & Developing Your Own Lab will be held on 7th June 2022, in-person on Edge Hill University’s beautiful campus.

The talks will be followed by a tour of the Department of Psychology at Edge Hill University, refreshments, and dinner at The Cricketers in Ormskirk.

The evening is the perfect way to round-off what has been a brilliant series of talks, and will be a great opportunity to network with other Early Career Researchers (including PhD Students, Post-docs and new PIs) in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

3.50 – Welcome

 

4:00 – [expand title=”Dr. Linda KayeOnline and open practices in research: Why your digital footprints may be useful“]

The Internet has opened up a wide range of opportunities for researchers particularly in supporting research dissemination and impact. This can include use of online repositories for making research resources publicly available, as well as using social media for supporting research dissemination and communication. This talk outlines some of the benefits of such online and open research practices including: increasing visibility, representation, research accessibility, and encouraging reach of impact. All of these are framed around a discussion about how these can help researchers forge their (digital) legacy and how mentors could use these as part of their mentorship discussions and practices.

Dr Linda Kaye is a Reader in Psychology at Edge Hill University. She specialises in cyberpsychology, in particular how online settings promote social inclusion and well-being. She is the author of “Issues and Debates in Cyberpsychology” (Open University Press).

Linda is also one of four founding members and is currently Chair of the British Psychological Society’s Cyberpsychology Section. Linda also has her own private consultancy company “The CyberDoctor” in which she has worked with a range of clients to help inform technological solutions and give psychological insight into their users’ online experiences.
