New Journal Publication - Dr Emily Henderson and Ahmad Akkad
We are pleased to note the new co-authored publication from Dr Emily Henderson and Ahmad Akkad, one of our PhD students, published in the Teaching in Higher Education Journal. The article, entitled 'Exploring the role of HE teachers as change agents in the reconstruction of post-conflict Syria', is based on Ahmad's MA Global Education and International Development dissertation work, and can be viewed online.
Dr Emily Henderson and Dr James Burford were recently invited to present a seminar on "Inclusive Conferencing" by the "Equitea" forum in the Astronomy and Astrophysics Group at Warwick. The presentation focused on why inclusive conferences matter, and how to make conferences more inclusive from an organiser's and a delegate's perspective. You can see more information about Equitea on their website.
We are delighted that Dr Emily Henderson has been invited to join the British Academy’s Higher Education Policy Development Group.
This is a forum for discussion of issues relevant to current higher education and research policy. The Group draws on expertise from within the Academy’s Fellowship and more broadly across the UK higher education sector, to explore developments in policy and society which relate to universities, researchers, students and staff, with particular reference to SHAPE disciplines (Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts for People and the Economy).
The Group’s discussions inform the development of the policy positions the Academy takes in its role as the voice of the humanities and social sciences, and guide the projects and activities the Academy carries out to build its evidence base and stimulate debate on topics which affect the health of our disciplines.
