Title: “I feel like a grown-up person”: first year undergraduates’ experiences of inquiry and research.
Professor Philippa Levy, Academic Director, CILASS, University of Sheffield.
How do students experience inquiry and research in their first undergraduate year? What role does this experience play in the construction and evolution of their identities and intellectual development as learners? What can we learn from their experiences to inform the development of inquiry-based approaches to educational practice? This seminar will explore these questions through a presentation of some of the findings of a longitudinal, qualitative study of undergraduate students’ experiences of inquiry as they progress through arts and social sciences degree programmes at the University of Sheffield.
