We are delighted to launch a new online resource to support Research in Practice Link Officers.
The Link Officer toolkit contains a range of accessible tools and resources to support new and existing Link Officers to embed Research in Practice resources and demonstrate value from being in partnership with us.
Link Officers are the lynchpins at the centre of our network, playing a key role in promoting the use of evidence-informed practice within Partner organisations and as part of our offer we aim to provide continued support.
The toolkit contains four sections:
- Welcome to Research in Practice – To welcome new Partners to our network, this section contains introductory videos and information about us and what we do.
- Getting started – Being a new Link Officer can be an exciting but challenging prospect, within this section you will find introductory guidance to help new Link Officers get started.
- Building engagement – This section contains top tips to support and improve engagement with Research in Practice resources within Partner organisations.
- Promotional materials – A range of downloadable posters, flyers and leaflets that support and raise awareness of Research in Practice to share directly in organisations.
Alongside this, a separate ‘Tools and resources’ area has been designed to provide additional links to helpful blogs, publications and resources that Link Officers may find useful. This area will be regularly updated to contain the latest news and developments.
We hope that this new resource will prove beneficial to all of our Link Officers and Partners.
