Making Research Decisions
We all make research decisions. Some decisions are day-to-day, each individually small but with large cumulative effects that shape our success in the long term. Other individual decisions are self-evidently large, shaping our careers and research for years to come. What criteria do we use to make these decisions? Many of the decisions are made with incomplete information. How can we be sure that the decisions are the best under the circumstances? In this session, we will discuss three scenarios. You will have the opportunity to discuss how you would respond to each scenario in a small group, and we will then collate the various perspectives. There are no right or wrong answers for these exercises. The purpose is to consider different options and to share a diversity of perspectives with the aim to help you make the very best research decisions.
