Engaging, sharing, learning

Engagement

What's coming up next?

Equity, Exclusion & Everyday Science Learning.

When: 15 May 2019, 1.00-2.30pm

Where: Michael Smith Building (lecture theatre at enrance)

With Special Guest: Dr Emily Dawson, UCL - My work focuses on how people learn about and engage with science, with an emphasis on equity and social justice. My research and teaching explore how some science education practices across the formal and informal education sectors (i.e. from schools, to museums, to watching TV at home) set certain kinds of people up to be successful when they engage with science, while other people are set up to fail. Find out more.
