This resource contains materials from a conference on 'Sustainability and the Humanities' held at Cardiff University on the 10th May 2010. The event was organised and led by Professor Geoffrey Samuel, Cardiff University and Dr Alex Ryan, University of Gloucestershire and Honorary Research Associate at Cardiff University. It was jointly arranged through the Body, Health and Religion Research Group (BAHAR) and the Cardiff Humanities Research Institute. Resources available here include the event programme and a PDF containing key slides from the welcome address by Dr Alex Ryan, outlining thematic connections between humanities disciplines and how they can engage with sustainability in academic practice, both in research and in reorienting teaching and learning. Audiovisual files from the headline presentations by Professor Geoffrey Samuel, Dr Colin Brooks, Professor Barbara Adam and Professor Justin Lewis can also be accessed at: http://www.bodyhealthreligion.org.uk/BAHAR/sustainability.html
This is a document, uploaded as a PDF and as a ppt, outlining the main points of the presentation given at the HEA-funded OpenLIVES workshop at the University of Southampton (LLAS) on the 23rd of May 2012. During the presentation some educational principles and practices emerging from the OpenLIVES experience were discussed, including the idea of student as an author and transacademic life skills. This presentation is the basis for the second part of the OpenLIVES presentation of the July 2012 LLAS Symposium in Edinburgh given in conjunction with Kate Borthwick, from LLAS in Southampton.
This Collection is the first of seven that make up 'The Pool', a selection of Open Educational Resources designed to support the professional development of English lecturers. This resource collection (like all those which together form 'The Pool') is designed to inspire thinking about the formative relations between educational practice and the scholarly study of language, writing, and culture. Of interest to lecturers at different career stages (especially those just setting out), and to leaders of accredited courses.
