We are so excited to be piloting the SMaRteN Co-Creation Workshops.
These are opportunities for researchers and students to work together, to develop important research activity. This is not asking you to take part as a research participant, but instead asking you to collaborate with a researcher, before they start collecting data, to help them refine their project and their approach. The sessions are opportunities to:
- Develop your analytical and team-working skills
- Learn more about student mental health research
- Make your own voice on key issues heard!
Throughout the month of May, we will be running two sets Co-Creation Workshop and you can participate in either or both if you are very keen!
By registering now, you are registering to attend the first two introductory sessions, which will be the researchers 'pitching' their project to you! They will outline what their eventual research will involve and how your creative input now will help shape things. If you like what you hear, you can register to attend the follow up Workshops in May. A link to register for these will be sent after the introductory sessions.
This means the introductory sessions are different and you can take part in either or both projects.
On Tuesday 3rd May we will feature Luke Sellers and his project 'Curating with(in)tangible Contexts.'
Luke's Workshops will then run 5:30-6:30pm on Tuesday 10th, 17th and 24th May.
On Thursday 5th May we will feature Natalie Wilde and her research project 'Seeking help for mental wellbeing as an undergraduate student'
Natalie's Workshops will then run 5:30-6:30pm on Thursday 12th, 19th and 26th May.
