Take part in a workshop on Belonging at the University

Posted by rmt22 at May 31, 2017 10:05 AM |
We are looking for students and staff to take part in a workshop which will illustrate what staff and students feel about the University.

Students and staff are the lifeblood of the University of Leicester, and so it’s important that everyone feels that they have a connection to the University of some kind; that they belong here.

In recent years, emerging evidence in the sector has suggested that universities, staff and students are perhaps not as closely connected as they might have been previously.

Mark Rawlinson, our Dean of Students (you can read more about his role here), is inviting both students and staff to join him for an afternoon of creative thinking and playing around this subject.

In order to understand more about what ‘belonging’ means here at the University, and how that might differ for different staff, students, modes or locations of study, we are inviting 12 participants (six staff, six students) to join us on the afternoon of Tuesday 13 June.

We will be using the Lego Serious Play approach to explore different ideas and aspects of belonging, and to ensure that each participant is given an equal voice. You may remember Lego from childhood (or parenthood), or might still build your own models – but no previous experience with Lego, or indeed building or creative skills, are needed for the workshop.

The workshop is open to all current students and staff of the University, who are able to attend the workshop in Leicester on 13 June from 1-5pm. We are operating a stratified selection process, to ensure we get a representative group; and the numbers are limited to 12.

Please apply using the special application form.
