VR/AR workshop to share ideas and discuss possible cross-disciplinary collaborations – Thursday 15th February 10.00 a.m. – Docklands

In order to prepare ourselves for future bids for virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) related research funding we have organised a VR/AR workshop with GrantCraft to be held at the Docklands Campus on Thursday 15th February at 10.00 a.m.  There are still 4 spaces available for any academic who has not already booked on a first come first serve basis by contacting ReDS at reds@uel.ac.uk

I’m sure that many colleagues are already familiar with the potential of VR and AR technologies in their subject area and how that potential may crossover with other disciplines. In the computer sciences, for example, researchers have developed new interfaces that navigate simulations of real world experiences. In media and film researchers are working with AR and VR to explore new possibilities in narrative and documentary as well as new understandings of virtual experiences. In psychology researchers are working with VR assisted assessment and therapy and the neurosciences are exploiting VR’s compatibility with imaging technology (e.g. fMRI) to record changes in brain activity experienced through virtual sensory stimulation.

Drawing on UEL’s current subject expertise we hope to stimulate some great cross-disciplinary collaborative project ideas that will favourably position our research in the future.

Once the positions have been filled this advert will be taken down and spaces no longer available.

SHARE: A New Model for Social Work – seminar and book launch

Wed, February 28, 2018

6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Room CCG.05, Stratford Campus

This event brings together the authors of the book “SHARE: A New Model for Social Work” (Siobhan Maclean, Jo Finch and Prospera Tedam) and some of the “stakeholder voice” contributors.

A key driver in developing the SHARE model was ensuring that the many voices of social work are heard, i.e. service users, carers, experts by experience, managers, academics, practitioners, students and practice educators. To that end, the book contains more than 40 “stakeholder voices”. The SHARE model therefore aims at re-orientating social work back to a more emancipatory and shared profession. The SHARE model can be applied in any social work setting and has great relevance for practice education.

The seminar and book launch, takes the audience through the SHARE model, the components of which are:

Seeing

Hearing

Action

Reading

Evaluation

The authors will introduce the what, why and how of the SHARE model with contributions from four stakeholders.

Refreshments and drinks will be provided and the book will be available for purchase at a special book launch discounted price.
