Panic! At the work placement

The PSA's Teaching and Learning Network are pleased to be hosting their fourth series of webinars 'Teaching Politics and IR online: Key Issues, Skills and Pedagogy'. 

Wednesday 9th June (12-1pm) led by Dr Pete Woodcock, University of Huddersfield.

Politics degrees have increasingly moved towards having work placements in recent years, but the pandemic has created numerous problems for students obtaining and completing a placement. This webinar outlines the experiences we faced in running the work placement module in the academic years 19/20 and 20/21, the steps we took towards mitigating these problems, and invites discussion on how work placements will sit in politics degrees in the next few academic years.

By the end of the session, it is hoped that by pooling our experiences participants will be able to better plan for the academic year 21/22 and be able to reflect on the position of work placements in a post pandemic world.

PSA Members who attend three or more of the T&L Webinar series receive a certificate of participation.

Please ensure you register prior to the event. The webinar will be hosted via Zoom and joining instructions will be sent to participants the morning of the event.
