Join our Pro Vice Chancellor Academic, Helen Scott as she discusses her experiences of working in education – thinking about both her contributions and takeaways.
Taking Place: Tuesday 15th September, 12:30 – 13:30 BST
For most of her life, Helen, our Pro Vice-Chancellor Academic, has been involved in education in some form or another - from playgroup, through school and university to working as a teacher, then in different roles in universities. At every stage of life she has been shaped by an experience connected either directly or indirectly to an educational context or event. In common with most people, her experiences have been mixed - some amazing and positive, others shocking and horizon-shifting. In this lecture, Helen will explore what different educational experiences have taught her about resilience, injustice, privilege, kindness, creativity, human nature and making sense of whatever comes your way, to name a few.
If you have any questions for Helen, please include these in the registration form and we will try to get these answered as part of the session.
