Engaged Practice Learning Exchange

< Back to all events
Monday, November 28, 2016 - 11:00am to 4:30pm

Given the Engage Conference theme Engaged Students: The role of engagement in teaching and learning, this year’s EPLE will explore the various ways in which students are already carrying out engaged research on behalf of communities.  It will seek to share knowledge: drawing on both practical and theoretical dimensions of engagement; consider how we might develop our practice: and explore what skills and methods might be needed.  It will also provide an opportunity for people interested in this issue to network and connect: exploring the ways and means engaged practice is developed in different local and global contexts.

The session will be facilitated by The Science Shop at Queen’s University Belfast through the European Commission-funded Enhancing Responsible Research and Innovation through Curricula in Higher Education (EnRRICH) project.  For more details see  www.enrrich.eu.

The EPLE is for you if:

  • You are an engagement practitioner (academic or professional services) from inside or outside higher education
  • You have several years of experience of engaged practice in teaching and learning
  • You are keen to reflect on how other perspectives and knowledges might influence your own practice
  • You have the appetite to join an online and face to face network to stimulate innovation in engaged practice
  • You are keen to share and reflect on your own work

A fuller programme will be available in late October.

The fee for attending this event is £50.00.
