I’m really looking forward to hearing about other PhD students’ research in science education, and the opportunity to receive critical feedback on my own work from other academic tutors.

At the biennial Summer School, small groups of six to nine PhD students will present their current research and will have opportunities for in-depth discussions with other students and two experienced researcher ‘coaches’. Lectures and workshops will also be provided by experienced tutors as well as informal networking opportunities.

Xiaomei Yan, who is supervised by Professor Sibel Erduran and Dr Federica Olivero from the Graduate School, comments: “ I’m really looking forward to hearing about other PhD students’ research in science education, and the opportunity to receive critical feedback on my own work from other academic tutors.”
