Tue 1 March 2016, 12:30 – 14:00 GMT
We regret that this event has been cancelled.
Dr Julie Wintrup, Principal Teaching Fellow in the Centre for Innovation and Leadership in Health Sciences, will be delivering this seminar on Tuesday 1 March.
Fielding, in 2001, spoke of students as radical agents of change. In this session we argue that, if such agency is to be realised in relation to education programmes at Southampton, conditions and opportunities must be created by those who currently develop and control curricula. Two projects, connected in different ways to this ambition and to the organisation's goal of globally relevant and inclusive education, involved students working as part of a team to determine questions and methods through which to explore aspects of their own education. Research assistants who were also very recent graduates - one having just completed a PhD in Geography and the other a Master's degree in Social Anthropology - became integral to the projects and were able to relate readily to the student experience.
The first explored how international post graduates experienced feedback - in taught courses and in supervision - and was designed and conducted by students who interviewed peers from different parts of the world studying a variety of topics and disciplines. The second is published here https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/sites/default/files/purposeful_partnerships_and_practices.pdf and involved Occupational therapy third year students researching an established international exchange project.
This session will focus on the practical, ethical and methodological implications of co-researching with undergraduate and postgraduate students, and its strengths and limitations as an approach. Early findings from both projects will be interwoven throughout the session and used to illustrate key points.
Light lunch 12.30 - 13.00, followed by seminar 13.00-14.00.
All students and staff welcome!
