Building Research Administrator Competencies Conference
Research administrators come to this profession from a wide variety of educational backgrounds, professional experiences and personal histories and research administrators also have varied knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that inform how we do our work.
We believe that when we learn about each other, learn from each other, and learn with each other we can improve efficiency in the research enterprise and allow us to deliver better support and more effectively support research integrity.
The Building Research Administrator Competencies (BRAC) aims to strengthen levels of cooperation, coordination and collaboration across the many roles and responsibilities within the research enterprise. We seek to transform the research enterprise by engaging administrators in an interactive environment to prepare them to deliberately work better together.
We will explore the following core competency domains:
Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice in the Research Enterprise
Roles/Responsibilities for Research Professionals
Interprofessional Communication in the Research Enterprise
Teams and Teamwork in the Research Enterprise
We've built our curriculum on the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice as sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the American Association of Osteopathic Medicine, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, the American Dental Education Association, and the Association of Schools of Public Health.
Up to 21 credit hours of continuing education credits will be available to attendees.
