The pressure for academic staff to engage in research has grown over the last two decades. Not only do institutions expect academic staff to conduct research to inform their teaching (teaching-research nexus) but external quality standards also make demands on institutions for research output based on their status as universities.
Experts at Learning Matrix have the necessary expertise and experience to successfully develop institutional research capacity in higher education.
We offer support for research in the form of:
- Academic staff development workshops on conducting research
- Mentoring of imminent researchers
Workshops include topics ranging from research ethics and increasing institutional research output, to finding the right research paradigm for the individual and completing ethics clearances for research purposes.
