18 January 2014: Communicating More Effectively Within & Beyond the Classroom (Liverpool John Moores University)

 Liverpool JMU

 

 

This workshop provides hands-on training in the use of digital technologies for teaching and wider communication purposes. The workshop opens with a talk on ‘Teaching Feminism’ by Professor Gina Wisker (University of Brighton). This is followed by a practical workshop on the use of digital and other technologies in the classroom by Dr Nadine Muller, who teaches an undergraduate module dedicated to presentation and social media skills. The day focuses on two key communication challenges: i) how to engage audiences positively on the subject of feminism, and ii) how be more creative in communicating contemporary women’s poetry to wider constituent groups. The day concludes with a choice of practice-based workshops: ‘How to Prepare and Perform for a Successful Ph.D. Viva’ (Dr Susan Watkins, Leeds Metropolitan University) or ‘Fitting Research Into Teaching’ (Professor Lucie Armitt, University of Lincoln).
