The British Society of Criminology Learning & Teaching Network Are Hosting:
Criminology at the Cutting Edge of the Curriculum on Thursday 14th September 2017
Criminology due to unprecedented changes in the social, economic and political landscapes is experiencing new avenues of exploration in a range of new frontiers from: border control, positive criminology, new forms of cyber crime, green criminology, state crimes, celebrity and crime, public criminology etc. We are keen to hear how such areas and many others are affecting the pedagogical practices, the learning and teaching methods, strategies, structures and assessments in order to deliver a curriculum that is relevant and impactful to students.
The aim of the conference is to provide a space to explore new and innovative ways of delivering an ever-complex curriculum. We recognise that there is no one size fits all approach. We therefore welcome papers that are still at the ideas stage, as well as those sharing experiences of their attempts to be innovative which have not worked as well as you had hoped but have now gained some insight and reflections on your experiences; and we welcome papers from those of you who have had successful ‘experiments’ in
