08 Mar 2018

2pm to 4pm

It is clear from both tutors’ observations and UAL institutional research that engaging with industry and communities of practice improves student attainment. But what are the mechanisms that bring this about? And how can we ensure these opportunities are accessible to all?

This workshop will review evidence that links student attainment with industry engagement, and explore how best to maximise the educative impact of placements, live projects and competitions in ways that promote equality of access.

Who should attend? 
This workshop is most relevant to staff who advise or support students about placements or who lead course components that entail live projects or placements.

Dr Duna Sabri is a Researcher, UAL Institutional Projects.   She conducted the longitudinal research study on students’ experience and identity is this year offering a series of short specialist workshops exploring the research findings and their practical implications.  Each workshop stands alone.  Those wishing to attend more than one in the series can do so in any order or location.
