U21 and University of Nottingham Launch Collaborative Case Study on Engaging Early Career Researcher Cohorts in a Digital Environment
The 2020 U21 Early Career Researcher Workshop 'Modern Slavery, Forced Labour and Human Trafficking' was co-hosted with the Researcher Academy and the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham under unprecedented circumstances. Originally planned as a physical event, the coordinators had just a few short months to transform the face-to-face workshop into a virtual offer to an international cohort of attendees. Their case study outlines the key challenges that they faced and how they were addressed, and present brilliant successes as well as failures and lessons learned.
