The Postgraduate Knowledge Share is aimed at fostering interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration among postgraduate research students. Regardless of each of their specializations, there are areas of common interest, where postgraduate students can collaborate for mutual benefit. These range from research specific themes like academic writing, information management, conference tips and tricks and publishing to broader issues like entrepreneurship, climate changes, and big data. The Postgraduate Knowledge Share is student led and facilitated by Loughborough Students' Union through the elected PG Executive Officer George Hones. 

Last year we ran two sessions on gaining basic skills on using Adobe Photoshop. This sessions were well attended and positive feedback suggests that this is an area that research students can really benefit from. We are this year looking to run more sessions led by students on a variety of topics. If you are interested in running a session on a topic please fill out the form below. If you would like to see a session run in the future or want to gain skills in an area please contribute to the Padlet at the bottom of this page. 

Requirements to run sessions: 

There are only two requirements that those wishing to engage 

  1. To have completed the Graduate School Teaching Skills Course or have previous teaching experience. 
  2. Passion and enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and/or skills which will be beneficial for other students.

If you would like to see sessions run or have ideas but not the skills/confidence to take a session on your own then use the comment box below. We will monitor these comments, collate responses and try to seek out people to lead these sessions.

12:40pm on 17 Aug 17 1. I think some courses on the basics of LaTeX would be very useful to anyone writing a thesis. 2. Workshops on how to use software such as Matlab or Python to do data analysis (for people who are not programmers, of course). 3. I think there might be room for a course in what I would call 'advanced skills' in Excel, which would go beyond button-clicking and using the simplest of formulas, such as sums, averages, if statements etc.
