Conference: Undergraduate Students as Partners in Research
- Date: 22 Oct 2013
- Start Time: 10:00 am
- Location/venue: University of Sheffield
This one-day conference will explore how undergraduate students can undertake research in partnership with staff as part of their academic programmes, as an extra-curricular activity, through embedding interdisciplinary research into the curriculum and co-researching themes relating to learning and teaching practice and policy.
Student presenters will provide important perspectives on how partnerships can be established, give examples of current practice across the sector and help set the agenda for future developments. Staff input and partnership will also be represented in the presentations.
Staff and students from all areas are encouraged to attend in order to gain an understanding of student perceptions of research, their experiences of interaction with staff and ideas on possible interfaces between curriculum design and research practice.
