Online Scholar Training Modules

We have regularly provided guidance to individual scholars on how to best take advantage of the opportunities provided by a temporary SAR placement and planning ahead of a visit’s end or other career transition. We have also held several workshops in Europe and North America with scholars to discuss these issues. Now, we have distilled this guidance into the training modules below. We hope this will help provide guidance to even more scholars, and that these will be a resource for universities to support visiting scholars.

SAR’s Scholar Guide

The Scholar Guide is a handbook that focuses on how scholars can make the most of an academic opportunity in the SAR network and the wider academic community. It offers advice and guidance to assist scholars during their transitions into a new university community and in determining their short-term and long-term plans for the future. Although intended for SAR scholars, this handbook may be helpful for others, including those hosting and working with scholars.
