right4me Education – Insights Into University Modules & The Learning Experience With University of Reading & University of East Anglia

22nd June 2021 @ 16:15 - 17:15




right4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12 & 13 students. The sessions support students’ current studies and interests by giving an insight into curriculum areas covered in university modules whilst affording students the opportunity to talk to different universities and make informed comparisons about studying for, in this case, Education degrees.

In this session we will be joined by 2 universities, University of Reading & University of East Anglia, who will begin by exploring the fascinating academic content of their 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 Education degrees more generally.

With 30 minutes each, the respective talks and speakers will appear below when available:

  • University of East Anglia: Dr Harry T. Dyer, Lecturer in Education, School of Education & Lifelong Learning, will present: Exploring digital education – where we are, where we’ve been, and where we’re going. In this session, Dr Harry T. Dyer will unpack the history, present, and future of digital education. Drawing on a range of topics such as digital citizenship and digital literacy, we will discuss how education is currently making use of technology, and what is missing in the current UK curriculum. We will look at the disconnects between young people’s experiences online and the topics of discussion in classrooms to unpack if there is more we could do to make education better reflect the needs, experiences, and habits of young people in a meaningful way. We will also explore the ways in which technology treats users in an unequal way, and what this means for technology in the classroom, especially after a national pandemic where digital technology was a default means of education. Finally, we will explore new developments in technology, and what this might mean for classrooms of the future. Harry will make time to discuss the BA in general and the sorts of teaching UEA does, weaving in discussions of what to expect from an Education degree.
  • University of Reading: Exploring Inclusive Education from a students’ perspective – What I learnt and how. In this session, Rachel Emmerson will be sharing with you her experience of being a University Student, specifically focusing on modules related to Education for Inclusion. Rachel will be drawing on a range of modules that she completed as part of her degree, such as Education for Inclusion and Deafness in Education. Through this process she will introduce you to different themes that she explored as part of these modules, and most importantly share her learning with you. Finally she will share with you her reflections between learning face to face and learning online.”


By hearing from 2 universities, students will also appreciate how the further study of Education can vary between institutions, contributing to the depth of their HE research and assisting informed decision making. 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 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, Education and related disciplines.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the 2 topics and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Education at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans 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.
