This free workshop aims to disseminate research findings and to share ideas regarding the value and potential of an undergraduate research symposium as an annual cross-institutional initiative within the art, design and media sector.
It will consider how the collaborative research symposium can support and develop students’ final year dissertation work, and in particular how the opportunity for all students to write and design a (conference) poster and to present to their peers in a symposium format can play a powerful role in students’ academic development.
The workshop offers an opportunity to develop further collaboration opportunities and will present a wealth of student posters as exemplars for reference. It proposes an effective model that can easily be applied to other disciplines, in a single or cross-disciplinary manner.
The session will be led by the project creators with presentations by Ruth Dineen (National Teaching Fellow) and students that have been involved in a previous symposium.
This is one of the HEA’s Higher Education Discipline Workshop and Seminar Series. It is free of charge to all those interested in the workshop topic, with preference being given to staff working in HE institutions and HE in FE colleges from across the UK. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
A booking form and programme is available from Kirsten Hardie firstname.lastname@example.org
