Making Professor 2017 - Lancaster's flagship staff development event

The latest seminar in our popular series will take place on Monday 11th September, in the George Fox Building.

Programme 2017


Lancaster University is delighted to announce an expanded conference format for Making Professor 2017, aimed at giving staff the very best chance of getting to the top in their careers. 

The theme for the 2017 event is: “How to identify your pathway to chair”

This event is primarily designed for those with an interest in academic promotion to professor as a personal short-term or longer-term aim.  It is also open to those who provide support (either as HoD/manager or professional services) for academic colleagues.

This year’s internal and external keynote speakers and other contributors will provide first-hand insights into the role of a chair, top-tips for planning your career development, and ways of facing up to the challenges as you make your way to the top.  There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions through the day.

There will also be practical workshops focused on research, teaching and balanced pathways to promotion, with key questions for you to explore, and with expert input from a variety of perspectives.
