Researchers’ Coffee Morning – Finding the balance between teaching and research

These events offer an opportunity for PGRs to learn from senior researchers and meet other researchers from across the University.

September's theme is finding the balance between teaching and research

In this session, Professor Katy Holloway talks to Mark Llewellyn, Director of the Welsh Institute for Heath and Social Care, and Professor of Health and Care Policy at the University of South Wales, about how she manages her workload with both the teaching and research commitments required in her academic career. Katy will discuss her experiences and provide tips for other academic researchers who may be facing similar challenges.
