Peer-to-peer training scheme
The aim of the C-DICE peer-to-peer training scheme is to bring together post-doctoral researchers from C-DICE partners and technicians from the TALENT partnership to capture the knowledge and skills they have gained during their career that they would like to teach to fellow post-doctoral and/or doctoral researchers, and to identify the training they require to do this effectively.
Many post-doctoral researchers and technicians provide informal teaching and training to other members of their research group, especially to doctoral and fellow post-doctoral researchers. Due to the informal nature of this training, it can often be hard for post-doctoral researchers and technicians to provide evidence of this training, for example, on job applications. By providing post-doctoral researcher and technicians with the opportunity and tools required to share this training via the C-DICE network C-DICE provides a way for them to get formal recognition of this training whilst also upskilling other C-DICE post-doctoral researchers. In addition, peer-to-peer training will benefit C-DICE post-doctoral researchers by expanding their perspectives, improving their skills and foster meaningful connections between researchers across the C-DICE network.
Type of training suitable
The training provided should focus on skills required for the Infrastructure, Cities and Energy (IC&E) sectors, and/or associated with accelerating progress towards a net-zero society by 2050. These may be transferable skills if they are delivered with a Net Zero slant. Training on facilities and/or equipment funded via ERA or UKCRIC would be particularly welcome. All lengths and styles of training will be considered, some examples include; short video clip, 1-hour virtual session, virtual or in-person workshops of any length, whole day practical, contribution to a course that may span a number of weeks.
How to submit training
Please fill in the C-DICE Peer-to-Peer Training Specification form using the accompanying Training Specification Guidelines document. Part of this form asks you to state the intended learning outcomes of this training. C-DICE will provide training on how to write intended learning outcomes. To understand how much advice/ training you require in this area it is useful for us to see how you would frame the ILO, however you may leave this section blank if you wish.
