  • Designing and Implementing Training Programs for Your Institution: Techniques, Tools, and Tips

    Assessing and identifying organizational training needs from the outset is important for designing and preparing educational materials to achieve the desired learning outcomes.

    (90 minutes) Assessing and identifying organizational training needs from the outset is important for designing and preparing educational materials to achieve the desired learning outcomes.

  • What a Departmental Administrator Needs to Know about Federal Contracts

    In this webinar, we will explore everything that a Departmental Administrator needs to know in working with federal contracts for sponsored projects.

    (90 minutes) Departmental Administrators are often the key to successful management of federal contracts and sometimes they don’t even know it. They do it all – from the point of identifying a potential contract at the proposal stage, to managing to abide by the terms over the life of the award. The Departmental Administrator is often the central point of contact, supporting the transition from grant funded PI to contract funded PI with faculty.  The DRA also supports the central offices with the detailed knowledge and expertise needed at the local level. In this webinar, we will explore everything that a Departmental Administrator needs to know in working with federal contracts for sponsored projects. We will also do exercises and have time for questions.

  • Civility in Research Administration

    Civility. Compassion. Respect. Kindness. Service. Those related concepts are out of fashion in government and society right now. Let’s look at their place in the world of research administration.

    90 Minutes: Civility.  Compassion.  Respect.  Kindness.  Service.  Those related concepts are out of fashion in government and in society right now. Let’s look at their place in the world of Research Administration. Is it weak or silly to think of civility in a profession grounded in a vast policy and regulatory framework?  Is it foolish to think of civility when our conversations with frustrated customers can verge on hostility?  Is there really value in taking a compassionate approach when so many people push us for their own timeframes and their own needs?  Do we as research administrators have the responsibility to show respect even in the face of anger and frustration?  

    This webinar will be a conversation between the panelists.  We will ask questions and challenge assumptions as we discuss the practical and ethical roles of civility in a time of conflict, uncertainty, and volatility.  
    Please join us for this special webinar presentation as we wind down 2018 and prepare for 2019 with a renewed focus on the role of civility in our profession. This is an excellent opportunity to bring your team and constituencies together for this important and timely conversation.

    We invite you to contact us in advance with questions and comments by sending an email to: kmoreland@rsp.wisc.edu.

    We will be taking questions and comments throughout the webinar. We look forward to your participation.

  • The Power of Metrics in Research Administration

    This webinar will be a dive deep into what metrics can really do for us. We will discuss how metrics can help us support and improve our business processes and manage risk at an advanced level.

    90 minutes: This webinar will be a dive deep into what metrics can really do for us.  We will discuss how metrics can help us support and improve our business processes and manage risk at an advanced level. 

    Over the past decade, many institutions have invested in institutional systems that can be leveraged to support metric analysis.  Duke University is one of these universities and they have built a comprehensive structure for utilizing their data to support, build, and manage their operations.  At Duke University, they have institutional systems for proposal submission, purchasing, travel, ledger, closeout, post-award processes, training, etc.  The data from these systems is integrated to create monitoring metrics for cost-transfers, effort reporting, and other compliance requirements. These metrics are now available for data mining, analysis, and visualization to support the research mission and faculty more effectively.  The integrated data supports improved compliance, business operations, workload management and more at the departmental, school, and institutional levels.
     
    Also discussed will be what we can learn from the data we gather about awards, proposals, and other key areas.  Trend analysis can assist us in forecasting the future as well as identifying our challenges and opportunities. 
     
    This is an evolving field and, regardless of your institution’s scale, there are numerous opportunities to use your data to understand your institution better.  Please join us to further explore what research administration metrics can do for us.
