Public Engagement at Manchester

Engaging, sharing, learning


What's coming up next?

Working with school teachers

Many colleagues across the University work with pupils in schools; but this session will focus on areas of good practice in working with teachers. By working with teachers, we have an opportunity to establish long-lasting and far-reaching relationships which can have hugely positive impacts.

We will explore the benefits of working with school teachers and hear top-tips from colleagues with experience working with them.

  • Speakers:
    Stephanie Lee – Head of Student Recruitment (Outreach and Widening Participation)
  • Dr David Rydeheard – Senior Lecturer, School of Computer Science
  • Cat Lumb – Secondary and Post 16 Coordinator, Manchester Museum

When and Where:
11 May 2016, 1 – 2:30pm, University Place 2.219
