The Festival of Learning

The Festival of Learning will take place at Bournemouth University, 8-12th July 2017. CDE will be taking part this year, we will showcase some of your research. This could be a poster or any interactive demos you may have. We welcome any event suggestions and ideas you have to bring this event to life. We have requested space for Saturday 8th July, the family day, so your display can be fun / interactive and could even showcase previous projects you have completed. We want to bring CDE to life and raise the profile of the centre and we need your help to achieve this.  Email Zoe Leonard to confirm your participation.

The FOL, celebrating its 5th year, represents a wonderful celebration of learning, the Festival showcases BU’s research and expertise to a wide and varied audience, including local communities, staff, students, employers and alumni around the world.

Public Engagement Training

We have organised some joint Public Engagement Training with the other CDTs based at Bath.

This is a fantastic opportunity and we strongly recommend that you participate in the training. We have received really good feedback from others who have taken the courses, and it will also look great on your CV – especially if you go on to use it.

There are two training sessions, one is a ‘Designing a Creative Public Engagement Activity’ workshop and the other is a Non-Academic Writing workshop.

The Creative Workshop Training – 15th February 2017 – 14:00 – 17:00 Rooms TBC

Non-Academic Writing – 22nd February 2017 – 14:00 – 16:00 Rooms TBC

Please let Anna Beeton know if you are interested in this and which one (or both) ASAP, as there are limited numbers as the training is shared across 3 CDTs.

CDE is one of the sponsors for CVMP this year. It will be great to see you there.
