Engaged Researcher Online - Working With Schools Tue 28 Sep 2021   13:00 Finished

Engaging young people with your research can be very worthwhile and rewarding. This training session will support you with your public engagement work with schools by introducing you to the UK school system and discussing how public engagement work can fit with existing school priorities. We will consider ways in which your work can make an impact and briefly consider how public engagement can work with underrepresented groups and contribute to diversity and inclusion initiatives. You’ll be introduced to ways in which the University already works with schools to provide you with ideas for collaboration. Lastly, we’ll begin to think about how to plan and design activities suitable for school audiences.

At the end of this session, you’ll hopefully feel more confident about how to work effectively with schools and can start thinking about your own public engagement work. The group session will be followed by the opportunity for a one-to-one 15-minute session with the trainer where you can discuss your projects, ideas and questions and get project specific help.

This course will be led by Michelle Tang. Michelle currently works as the Deputy Head of Widening Participation for the University (within the Cambridge Admissions Office).

Michelle completed the Teach First Leadership Development Programme in 2016, during which she worked as a primary school teacher in north London, and holds a PGCE from the Institute of Education. She is passionate about social mobility and the transformative power of education in closing equality gaps.

This session builds on the introductory ‘Working with Schools’ session and dives deeper into the landscape of schools and primary/secondary education in the UK today. In the first half, we will consider: what are the key issues and challenges in schools today? With this understanding, we will talk about ways in which universities work with schools and what effective partnership looks like. In the second half, we will consider how to plan programmes and activities using pedagogical principles including constructing Theories of Change, embedding evaluation and implementing some popular teaching theories which may influence our practice.
