ERS Long Table Event - Support & Responsibility

ERS Long Table Event Support & Responsibility
This event is a collaboration between QMUL students and staff. Join us in this discussion and have your voice heard!
This 'long table' event is an open discussion to consider issues relating to students data and its uses and how students want to be supported.
We are interested in exploring your ideas about what QMUL should be doing to support you. During the course of your degree, we gather information about you. We use this information to better develop the institution and optimise your learning environment. How does this make YOU feel? Is it hand holding and intrusive? OR Is it what you want?
Lunch will be provided at this event but please feel free to bring your own lunch along with you if you prefer.
If you cannot stay for the entire event please come for as long as you can.
Please note that this event will be audio recorded for the purposes of informing QMUL research activity. Your participation will be kept anonymous. If you have any queries regarding audio recording, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What is a long table and what can be expected?
'The Long Table is a dinner party structured by etiquette, where conversation is the only course. The components are simple: the long table; chairs; a paper tablecloth; pens with which to make comments, to draw, or to scribble ideas. The final component is an etiquette sheet. This list of rules for engagement lays the groundwork for talk that is structured in its participatory aspect without being limited in content or access. The Long Table acknowledges the sometimes uncomfortable side of both private exchange and public engagement, while celebrating the potential for new forms of knowledge-making and -sharing.'*
As an audience, you can participate as much or as little as you would like. For you to participate you simply need to join the table and leave when you feel it's right to.
This event is organised by Dom Jethwa and Scarlett Catterall in collaboration with QMUL student Dushant Patel
*The Long Table is an experimental open public forum designed by QMUL Drama’s Professor Lois Weaver to facilitate dialogue through the gathering together of people with common interests. For more information please see http://publicaddresssystems.org
