2nd Year Law students at the SEDA Conference 2019

Year two students Megan Bennett and Tom Fuller presented at the SEDA Conference in Belfast (Staff & Educational Development Association) on 9th May 2019. They had been awarded a student bursary by SEDA to present our collaborative project, and they also took part in a panel answering questions from the audience. Megan and Tom , had been part of a core group of five students working with Amanda Millmore and Dr. Annika Newnham (academics from the School of Law) to design assessments for a new module, which embed employability skills. The five students in the core group were Megan and Tom, plus Jess Davies, Teresa Chew & Krissy Hiu. These students ran focus groups with other second year law students, and collaborated in the design of the assessments, and the new module Children, Families and the State is going to be running for their year group as a Final Year optional module in September 2019 with the employability skills focused assessments. The project was awarded money under the PLanT projects scheme in 2018/19.
