Achieve More Final Year posters commended
Three final-year undergraduates have been commended for the posters they produced as part of the University’s Achieve More Final Year (AMFY) initiative.
AMFY provides students with the opportunity to communicate their subject knowledge to non-specialist audiences, to deepen their disciplinary knowledge, to improve their communication skills and to develop greater awareness of audience perspectives. As part of this initiative, the department introduced a poster exercise, based on the final-year dissertation module projects.
All of our final-year students were invited to produce a poster, drawing on their current dissertation research and to participate in a virtual conference. Over 170 students produced a poster and engaged in on-line debate, responding to questions and comments from staff and students. Based on supervisory evaluation of the posters and the level of discussion generated, three students were commended for their posters. They are: Samuel Armfield, for his poster ‘United by diversity or divided by difference: is European identity in crisis?’; Joanna Moody, for her poster on ‘Gendered barriers to secondary education: experiences of menstruation in rural Uganda’; and Matthew Pearson, for his poster ‘Are the British public concerned about the threats climate change pose?’
Head of Department, John Flint, wrote to congratulate the students on their excellent work and to encourage them with their dissertations, due for submission on later in Spring 2017. All of those who successfully completed the exercise will have this recorded on their Higher Education Achievement Report. The posters will be on display in the department throughout the Spring Semester.
