Invitation to a National Symposium
'Enhancing Dissertations and Final Year Projects:
Experiences, Embedding and the Future'
29 February 2012
University of Gloucestershire
Park Campus, Cheltenham, GL50 2RH
This one day symposium will explore how the dissertation experience can be enhanced. It will explore case studies which demonstrate how dissertations or creative honours projects can take many forms which are innovative or creative in the context of their discipline or institution, and may include group, work-oriented and community-based projects. There can also be novel ways of disseminating the findings: via exhibitions, undergraduate research conferences and other forms of public engagement. The symposium will be an interactive, fun event stimulated by a few short talks and with plenty of opportunities for discussion.
Key note speakers include: Craig Mahoney (Chief Executive, HE Academy), Stephen Marston (VC, Gloucestershire) and Vicky Gunn (Glasgow).
The symposium is being offered free of charge, including refreshments and lunch, to both internal and external delegates, but because of this, places are restricted and will be allocated on a first come basis.
Final year undergraduate students are encouraged to participate.
