As a civic university, the University of Bristol embeds opportunities for students to co-produce knowledge with the community within the formal curriculum. Engaged Learning facilitates UG and PG students to apply theory to real-world contexts outside of the University classrooms through a variety of methods including consultancy, placements and co-production.
There are innovative, sector-leading examples of Engaged Learning at the University. The Engaged Learning Network aims to build on this strong foundation and facilitate peer-to-peer support for academics to share learning and challenges around developing pedagogy and processes for Engaged Learning projects.
Jointly hosted by the Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching and the Public Engagement team, the network showcases examples of the diverse range of Engaged Learning projects at the University to inspire staff to develop curricula which support students to develop their confidence, academic knowledge and professional skills through Engaged Learning.
The Engaged Learning Network hosts a series of workshops, facilitated training and speaker events throughout the year to support academics across all disciplines.
