Event description to advertise session to postdocs: See the associated document for topics and advertising descriptions. If we ran a session more than once and changed the session name both are included. Links have been deliberately removed.
Comments: We held regular virtual social sessions, on a range of discussion topics. We arranged them so they didn’t occur on the same weeks as the ‘how’s the journey going?’ drop -in sessions. We found if we called the sessions ‘social’ this put some postdocs off attending, so we called some 'revisit and refresh' sessions.
These sessions were not recorded as this would have stifled discussion. Mural boards, capturing the main discussion points raised, were typically the on-demand resource created so those who couldn’t attend live didn’t miss out altogether.
