insight4me Climate Change: Interdisciplinary Perspectives On Effective Action With University of Glasgow
March 4 @ 14:00 - 15:00
In this insight4me Climate Change webinar for schools and colleges, three different academic disciplines from University of Glasgow will each have roughly 20 minutes to deliver a punchy, ‘micro’ talk within an overall session theme of Interdisciplinary Perspectives On Effective Climate Action. The departments will use the time to convey the key points of their arguments and case studies for the Year 12/Year 13 students.
Through the discussion, the departments are also encouraged to provide an insight into the teaching and learning experience of these topic at university.
Full details of the 3 disciplines and their talks will be posted below once confirmed.
Students will have the chance to question each speaker and/or offer their own ideas.
Suitable for: All Year 12 and 13 students.
Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying at university level.
The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available to the school. Further details are here: Connecting in to a Channel Talent Event (Please Click)
We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. The sessions are generally limited to 3 to 5 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience. In this event there will be three groups of schools taking part increasing the opportunity to participate.
Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you have a group of students that you would like to take part in this event, please click here
Subject to availability we will book a place for you.
