Reconnecting through Engaged Learning and Scholarship: Impact, Frameworks, and Practice (6-7 July 2017, University of Sheffield, U.K)
The Diamond, S3 7RD
Keynote speakers: Professor Mike Neary (University of Lincoln) and Dr Claire Gordon (London School of Economics)
Engaged learning and teaching can be understood as combining (inter)disciplinary knowledge with opportunities for students to learn with and from external partners, 'real-world' challenges, and experiences outside universities. At a time of political and societal change, what is the role of engaged learning and its related forms of educational practice, including service learning, authentic learning, and civic engagement in connecting with communities?
This event aims to share frameworks, projects and experiences through which engaged learning can be approached, practised, and theorised.
