insight4me Politics: The Location Of Sovereignty In The UK Political System – 3 Unis in 1 Hour including University of Leicester, Aberystwyth University, and Goldsmiths, University of London

3rd October 2018 @ 14:35 - 15:35



insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12/Year 13 students. The sessions support students’ current studies by giving an insight into a particular curriculum area whilst affording students the opportunity to talk to different universities and make informed comparisons about how Politics is taught.

In this insight4me Politics webinar for schools and colleges, three universities, including Goldsmiths, University of London, Aberystwyth University and University of Leicester, will each talk to your students for 20 minutes about the question:

‘To what extent has the location of sovereignty in the UK political system changed in recent years?’

Each university will present the salient points/present an argument related to this political debate and then explain how they would treat this subject with respect to teaching and learning at the uni. Students will gain three different academic perspectives across the hour and would have the chance to question each speaker and/or offer their own ideas.

This will be a dynamic, fast paced event with the universities cycling between 3 different virtual rooms. The universities will decide how to manage the time but a rough guide would be a 10-12 minute talk followed by questions from the schools.

Suitable for: Year 12 and 13 students studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Politics.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the question posed and discuss some of the key elements. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Politics 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. 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: If you have a group of students that you would like to take part in this event, please contact us via email or via the contact form at the top right of this webpage (or at the bottom if you are using a mobile device). Subject to availability we will book a place for you. This is free for schools and colleges.
