Postgrad Lives Conference
Postgrad Lives: Challenges & Opportunities in Postgraduate Support & Education
Date: Thursday 9 May 2019
Time: Registration 9.30am, opening remarks 10am
Venue: Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute
The key note address will be delivered by Prof. Ronald Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education at University College London on the topic: "The Postgraduate's Life: living -- and flourishing-- on the edge".
With presentations from academics, educationalists, psychologists, learning advisors, disability officers and students, this free, one-day conference will bring stakeholders from the higher education sector together to discuss the postgraduate experience; share examples of best practice in postgraduate support, and begin a conversation on how to enhance the experience of postgraduate students throughout their educational journey.
Our title, "Postgraduate Lives", speaks to the different roles --students, researchers, educators and consumers-- postgraduate students occupy (often simultaneously) in our institutions. This conference will focus on this integral element of the higher education ecosystem through both academic and practitioner lenses.
The conference is jointly organised by Trinity's Postgraduate Advisory Service and CAVE (Cultures, Academic Values in Education) research centre from the School of Education, and is kindly hosted by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute with generous support from the Trinity Association and Trust and Trinity affiliation credit card.
Attendees are warmly invited to a reception following the conference in Trinity's Senior Common Room to mark 10th anniversary of the Postgraduate Advisory Service.
