The MIE student reps are organising an informal session ‘Your feedback for your MIE’ to take place on Thursday 20th March 3.30-5.30pm at Ellen Wilkinson Building, room AG.3/4. This is an opportunity for MIE students to get together with their peers and communicate their feedback and student experience in MIE to the programme reps.
As you may be aware this is just before the SEED Welcome party taking place at 6-9pm at Arthur Lewis Building. I remember an email saying to keep the date and I am sure further details will be distributed soon.So what do you say we, MIE students, get together in the afternoon and then walk to ALB for the party?
What we have planned is non-conventional so don’t expect the usual 15 minute presentation on someone’s research:
3.30-3.45pm – Welcome an introduction
3.45-4.45pm – Parallel sessions
- 1,2,3 minute pitches on ‘the best and the worst’ of your Doctoral experience so far. Your reps will be challenged to talk about their student experience or anything else uni-related for the number of minutes corresponding to their year of study. Then the floor will be open to everybody else to take the dare (but it’s ok if you prefer not to!). It’s a challenge but will be fun! Be creative as much as you like.
- Roundtables on student matters as broad as ‘What is it like to do a ProfDoc’ and as narrow as ‘Oh, no, I’m a final year student’. We’ll send you details of the topic in due course.
- Pop-up sessions – we’ve invited a few academic to give you their perspective on a hot social/educational topic – come listen and ask them the most challenging questions you can!
4.45-5.30pm –Group workshops
Tell your student reps what to do for you!
Come along to this MIE student organised event! If you can’t make the whole 2 hours, pop in as convenient, all we want to hear is more about your experiences and feedback J
