Autumn teaching

This special module is designed to showcase the state-of-the art research and methodology that academics and practitioners associated with this course are involved in. Each week a different session leader will present you with the latest research/applied practice that they have been undertaking within their field. A range of practical activities and discussions will be included in this module to encourage students to reflect on how this contemporary content will relate to their current academic studies, future professional goals and practice, and the concerns of society. Understanding how research can translate into policy and practice will be a key aim.
