Education Seminar Series

The Education Seminar Series is generally held fortnightly throughout the year, in video-conference rooms on all campuses, unless otherwise indicated.

All Faculty of Education staff and students, and the general public are welcome to attend.

Full details will be circulated via email on a fortnightly basis to staff and students.  Further information about the  seminars can also be found on the Faculty Calendar and events page.

‘Sharing scholarship’ seminars offer the opportunity for staff and Higher Degree by Research students to share ongoing or recently completed work, relating to any aspect of scholarship.

Times can also be scheduled to allow groups of staff and Higher Degree by Research students with common interests to meet and progress work collaboratively.
