This commissioned session will focus on different approaches to securing academic ‘buy-in’ and engagement with new administrative processes related to the submission of research grant applications. We will present a series of case studies from Queen’s University Belfast and University of York that highlight the various obstacles and barriers to successful implementation and the approaches that were adopted to overcome these. The case studies are – Action Learning Workshops (@ Queen’s) – Last Minute Grant Applications Policy (@ York) – Internal Peer Review (Everywhere) The focus of the case studies will be on how we worked with researchers to secure their engagement and designed the initiatives to be both useful and accommodating, whilst also meeting the needs of the institution. We will then use small group breakouts to ask attendees to consider and discuss some pre-prepared scenarios in order to gather feedback on their approaches to securing buy-in and engagement. We will use forms to collect this feedback and will subsequently put together a ‘best-practice’ resource that can be shared with ARMA members. Note: Registered attendees may be contacted in advance to assist with the development of the scenarios.
Key Learning Points:
- Gain an understanding of the policies/initiatives employed by Queen’s & York
- Learn about successful (and unsuccessful) approaches to engagement
- Contribute to a best practice resource/toolkit
- Get insights into the potential for the expansion of their role(s)
