Early Career Development Network

The IAM Early Career Development Network (ECDN) aims to provide IAM members with a range of professional and career development activities across the key strands of academic posts (Teaching, Research & Service). It holds a somewhat different focus to the Annual Conference along with hosting an extended target audience and group of contributors. The objectives of the ECDN are to:

  1. Encourage collaborative debate and learning on early academic career research, teaching, learning and professional development.
  2. Attract and build a community of scholars and practitioners interested in independent research, teaching & professional development practices.
  3. Establish a forum for discussion and debate on in Irish and international context.
  4. Build the capacity, skills and networks of IAM members
  5. Encourage the sharing of good practices in teaching, research and service amongst the IAM community
