Dr Joanna Royle
- Researcher Development Adviser (Research & Innovation Services)
I oversee the development, delivery, and evaluation of the Postgraduate Researcher development programme. This is a rich schedule of courses and events that range from compulsory research integrity training workshops, through residential retreats, to the very popular 3 Minute Thesis Competition. We offer an annual calendar of over 250 opportunities for postgraduate research students from all four Colleges to enrich their skills, foster their talents, accelerate their professional prospects, and build their research community.
Contact me about postgraduate researcher development (including the PGR@Home project), and how to use the Vitae Researcher Development Framework to support, cultivate, and document the attributes of successful researchers.
I came to the University of Glasgow at 18, attracted by the beautiful and historic campus, enthusiastic scholars, and rich music culture of the city. I stayed to complete Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in Medieval History. Since then I have specialised in widening access and building the academic and professional skills of different student cohorts connected with the University. I taught on the Access programme for non-traditional students, and worked for a dozen years in the international student pathway sector at Glasgow International College. I’m passionate about excellent training and teaching, and am CELTA qualified, a fellow of the HEA, and have a Masters in Higher Education Practice. I joined the Researcher Development team in 2020.
