Room 4.10, Graduate School of Education, 35 Berkeley Square, Clifton, BS8 1JA
Head of School Professor Justin Dillon will be opening the Festival with his inaugural lecture, which will examine learning in diverse contexts.
Initiatives such as Bristol Learning City and Bristol Green Capital offer opportunities to re-examine where exactly learning can take place. What is the role of museums, science centres and the outdoors in education? Do such places and spaces do more than increase motivation? In what ways can schools benefit from working more closely with other educational sites? In this talk Justin Dillon draws on evidence from the UK and overseas to illustrate the potential impact of collaborations between 'formal' education and 'informal' education.
Open to all and free to attend, this event will be followed by a drinks reception. Booking required via the online form.
If you require additional support for any of the lectures, e.g. wheelchair access or sign language interpretation, please contact Laura Bagley at the earliest opportunity and we will endeavour to meet your request.
