Upcoming Seminars – July 2021

The Society for Natural Sciences (supported by Advance HE) will be hosting two online workshops to support academics entitled “Getting into Pedagogic Research” this July.

Documenting interventions in education and their consequences has always been of value, but especially so in times of rapid adaptation such as have been brought about by the global pandemic. So, if you are involved in changing the way you teach it is useful to approach this as a research project, documenting what you did and why and evaluating the outcomes against your initial aims. These two on-line seminars are designed as a guide for teaching staff in STEM in HE who may not have much, if any, experience of educational research.

6 July 2.00-3.30pm The first seminar will focus on formulating a viable research question including some of the ethical issues involved

8 July 2.00-3.30 pm The second seminar will involve evaluating the research and writing it up for publication.

Presenters: Professor Derek Raine & Dr Sarah Gretton (University of Leicester)

The seminars are free to Members of the Society for Natural Sciences, but you will need to register (Advance HE Connect | Events (advance-he.ac.uk). Recordings will also be available to members.
