Upcoming Events

June 19 2013

Discover and Understand and Inspiration and Co.


Following the successful launches of the Discover and Understand Sheffield Colloquium event and the Inspiration and Co. lecture series, a Showcase event was held on:


 19 June at 301, Glossop Rd, from 12pm to 2pm


The Showcase was an opportunity for the wider staff team to learn more about the Discover and Understand initiative and hear first-hand from students about their experiences.  Students' "E-posters" were displayed (see left), presenting ideas they initiated at the Sheffield Colloquium week-long event; and Academics´ talks from both the Sheffield Colloquium and Inspiration and Co were being broadcast to give a flavour of some of the themes being addressed.  Our colleagues from USE delivered a session for students to further develop and implement their ideas in the future and a presentation by Cathy Shrank (Academic Lead, Sheffield Collquium), Richard Ward (Project Support, Sheffield Colloquium) and Chris Howett (Project Support, Inspiration and Co) delivered a broad overview to key stakeholders of both projects, from their initiation to their successful execution and aspirations for future events.
