Liberal Arts: Thinking Differently With Professor Ross Wilson, University of Nottingham
June 14 @ 13:00 - 13:45
In this interactive session, Professor Ross Wilson will explore how we can think across disciplines to create interesting and innovative approaches.
Using work from the arts, humanities and social sciences, this session will introduce students to a different way of looking at something which is common in all their lives: time. We will use time to rethink the past, present and future.
Students will learn about how research is conducted at university level, they will explore a range of methods and approaches from a range of disciplines and they will be able to participate in a small experiment on how we view our time perspectives.
Suitable for: Year 12s and Year 13s studying and/or thinking about studying the arts, humanities and social sciences.
Lecturer Biography: Professor Ross Wilson
Preparation/Pre-Reading: There is no preparation or pre-reading required for this session. Please make participating students aware that it is interactive and they will have the chance to ask and respond to questions and put forward their ideas.
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/college. 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 or 4 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience.
