This event provided final year students with an opportunity to communicate their dissertation ideas and results, and to gain feedback on their projects through discussion with other students and staff. Students displayed the aims, methods and key findings of their independent research projects, which span a range of diverse topics in both physical and human geography. Academic staff and postgraduate researchers were encouraged to discuss students’ work, and the event was well attended by other undergraduate students keen to learn about the dissertation process ahead.
Professor Joanna Bullard, Associate Dean for Teaching in the School of Social Sciences, said
“This new learning community event was an excellent showcase for the quality and variety of dissertation projects undertaken by final year Geography and Environment students. There was a really exciting atmosphere and I was incredibly impressed by the effort students had put in to their posters, and the confidence and enthusiasm with which they spoke about their work”.
