EVENT - The agency of early career academics: a counterpart to student engagement?
Mile End campus, Queen Mary, University of London
14 May 2012

This is the eighth seminar in the 2011/12 educational research seminars series run by the Learning Institute at Queen Mary, University of London. Given by Dr Peter Kahn (Director of Studies for the online professional doctorate (EdD) in Higher Education at the University of Liverpool), the seminar will draw parallels between student engagement and the agency of staff through a focus on the professional learning of early career academics. This seminar highlights ways in which an individual student or academic can shape their learning or professional practice, focusing on the reflexive and social underpinnings of such engagement.
