Learning and Teaching Development is very keen on engaging with
students in ways that facilitate a positive and collaborative
learning environment across the University. We would like to create
a friendly research culture across the institution that gives
students opportunities to find out what it’s like to “do” research
alongside academic staff.
Other opportunities include participating in dialogue with the
possibility of effecting change in assessment, feedback and
curriculum design. In the 'Students as Researchers' section of our
website you will find more information about 'Students as
Researchers' scheme, how to become a research assistant, how to
receive funding for attending conferences and about
upcoming student events, both internal and external.
There are four main ways in which Learning and Teaching
Development can help students:
- We advertise opportunities for students to become Research
Assistants ('Students as Researchers' scheme) twice a year
- We support the Student Researchers network
- We organise the Annual Undergraduate Research Conference
- We provide funding for students to present at conferences.
