Transdisciplinary CPD Showcase Series: Rapid Project Refinement Activity (Intervention Taster)



Book NowNorthumbria University's Department of Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing (SWECW) places itself strategically to play a significant role in aiding societal recovery and repair beyond the pandemic period (Future of SWECW, 2021).

Together with the Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health (NMH), SWECW have a wealth of expertise in working with our partners in the north-east and beyond, supporting professional development and being responsive to workplace needs.

In this series we showcase some of our expertise in teaching and in research, to our partners and interested parties. We can offer bespoke CPD provision (either accredited or non-accredited). Working collaboratively, we can blend our CPD offer with our research and knowledge exchange strategies.

Session 4: Rapid Project Refinement Activity (Intervention Taster)
Delivered by: Dr Ian Robson and colleagues

Do you work with diverse teams of people to address shared concerns? Are you concerned about inclusion, meaningful participation and better collaboration? Would you like to try some of our tested methods for reviewing situations, forming ideas and testing proposals? 

This informal online workshop, facilitated by Dr Ian Robson, will invite you to join participants to experiment with activities that support rapid project review and development. He will explain how the creative methods used have been tested in health, care and local government systems and are informed by theory and evidence. No special skills are needed, and you do not need to share information that you would rather not. Importantly - no-one will be embarrassed or put on the spot! You can bring an idea to develop and test, or simply take part in developing a fictional scenario. 

Who Should Attend?

  • Practitioners, managers or commissioners interested in inclusive development interventions for new or established teams, open to constructive challenge, new ideas and their own CPD.
