NORDP 2018 Short Course: Foundations of Research Development: An Introduction

#NORDP2018 starts Monday, May 7 in Arlington, VA. Keep checking back here at the blog and on our Twitter feed (@NORDP_official) for live conference updates. Register here:

At this year’s conference, a short course in Research Development (RD) is being offered for the first time in addition to the Pre-Conference Workshops. The short course is intended for new RD professionals (i.e., those with fewer than three years of experience in RD), or for individuals who are considering becoming RD professionals. The instructors are all experienced RD professionals (with more than half a century’s worth of experience in RD between them), and the course material is all information they think is essential to those first getting started in the profession.

This course is an introduction to RD; it isn’t going to cover everything that RD professionals do, or all the ways in which we do those things. It will, however, provide a theoretical and practical grounding in RD for individuals who are newer to the profession or who are considering joining it.
