One of the best parts about a 23 Things programme is the ability to interact with and draw on the expertise and learning of a community of participants. Over the course of the week, we’ll be adding to the list of participants’ blogs in the sidebar (also known as a blogroll). Take some time to look at other blogs and read about what other community members hope to get from this course. Feel free to comment on others’ posts.

We encourage you to keep checking other blogs as the programme continues. Seeing what others are doing can often help answer your own questions and can offer inspiration for your own work!

Congratulations on your new blog. We hope choosing your title and pseudonym didn’t keep you up all night. Perhaps you have made your first post already, pondering pressing issues over an artisan coffee.

Please provide us with some details so we can check out your blog posts over the coming weeks. We’re eager readers.

You can do this by emailing us at rdp@surrey.ac.uk with your name and faculty, your blog name and your blog’s URL. Please register your blog with us by noon on the 4th of May. You blog will then be added to our ‘blogroll’ on the right-hand side of the blog.

Participants who register their blogs and complete all the Things will receive a completion certificate.

Thing 1: Read about the 23 Things programme. Set up a blog. Write a blog post.

This week we’ll cover Things 1, 2 and 3, which will help you get started with the programme, set up a blog, and share your thoughts and progress. We’ll always post each week’s new Things on Monday morning, so you can schedule them into your work week.

Although the course is self-directed, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. You’re always welcome to leave a comment here on the blog, but you can also email the team (rdp@surrey.ac.uk), tweet @RDP_Surrey with the hashtag #23ThingsSurrey, or leave a message on the Researcher Development Facebook page.

Welcome to 23 Things for Research.

This week we’ll cover Things 1, 2 and 3, which will help you get started with the programme, set up a blog, and share your thoughts and progress. We’ll always post each week’s new Things on Monday morning, so you can schedule them into your work week.

We know that it’s quite an intense programme to get through (especially when you’re trying to do your research as well), so please feel free to work at your own pace and take longer than scheduled.
