University staff and PGR students are invited to a series of online seminars discussing theoretical ideas Plymouth Institute of Education are using in our research in education.
The idea of these seminars is to have a chance to talk together about the theoretical ideas we are using in our research in education (and in other areas of the faculty). They are therefore aimed at being interactive and discursive and should be of interest to anyone who wants to explore the theoretical topic in an informal discussion, or for people who are interested to find out more about it.
If you wish to participate then please email email@example.com to receive a calendar invite for the Zoom seminar or to find out more. We look forward to seeing you.
