Philosophy: right4me Philosophy – Insights Into University Modules & The Learning Experience With University of East Anglia & 1 Uni TBC

March 21 @ 16:15 - 17:15

 

 

right4me is a series of subject specific webinars for Year 12 & 13 students, and equivalent. The sessions support students’ current studies and interests by giving an insight into curriculum areas covered in university modules. In addition, by hearing from 2 universities for 30 minutes each, students will appreciate how the further study of Philosophy can vary between institutions, contributing to the depth of their HE research and assisting informed decision making.

In this session we will be joined by two universities, including University of East Anglia, who will begin by exploring the fascinating academic content of their Philosophy degree programmes in the form of a mini lecture based on one of their undergraduate modules.

Each university will then offer an insight into the teaching and learning experience related to these modules and to their Philosophy degrees more generally.

The respective talks and speakers will appear below when confirmed. There will be time and opportunity for participation and questions.


 

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.

 

Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Philosophy and related disciplines.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the content of the talks and questions they may have. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Philosophy at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
