Students as Researchers: Novice to Expert
- Lakeside Centre (Birmingham)
- 20 April 2009 09:45 - 26 April 2009 16:00
This is a unique event, bringing students from all levels from undergraduate to PhD together, to listen to and exchange ideas with peers and professionals UK-wide. The key-note speaker, Professor Jim Conroy, Dean in the Faculty of Education at the University of Glasgow, will be addressing the conference on:
Negotiating tricky corners: becoming a researcher in Education
Other sessions will include information on cutting edge research techniques, undergraduate research, research and dissemination opportunities and students' own research experiences. It will also provide a student-only poster session and an introduction to valuable networking opportunities for student researchers.
If your department is encouraging you to get your students into research mode, for support and ideas the Aston Lakeside Conference Centre is where you and your students should be on April 20th next!
They'd be grateful if you could encourage students in your department to attend by circulating this information. Even better, please encourage students to apply to present a poster in the conference's student-only poster session (applications are due 9th March).
