This workshop will help you think through how social relationships support your work. We will cover networking and what it can do for your career, as well as managing your supervisors. Finally we will discuss what you can tell those people who rely on you.


  1. To explore the social and professional resources you can draw on in order to support you through your research.
  2. To identify the particular people and relationships you need to pay attention to.
  3. To develop your understanding of the skills you need to develop your support networks.
  4. To make some links around the topic of networking between research methodology, research practice and research content.

Dr Chris High is a lecturer in systems thinking and practice at the OU.
