The Changing Face of Health and Social Care
We’d like to invite BTEC students who are interested in studying a Health and Social Care course at university to participate in a research project and exhibit their work at NTU. All participants who submit a poster will be invited to attend a research conference on 18 April with some of our current first year students.
The Changing Face of Health and Social Care Research Conference has been designed to highlight a broad range of research and its importance to the university experience.
- From: Monday 18 April 2016, 12 am
- To: Monday 18 April 2016, 12 am
- Location: Boots Library, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 5LS
The Changing Face of Health and Social Care Research Conference aims to highlight a broad range of research and its importance to the university experience to prospective students.
BTEC students who are currently studying Health and Social Care are invited to participate in a research project which will culminate in the production of a poster. The posters will then be exhibited at NTU during the research conference on 18 April.
This is a great opportunity for BTEC students to:
- participate in a research project
- attend in a preparatory session in Research Skills (in school or college)
- develop skills for independent learning
- meet current students, researchers and academics
- learn more about the university experience
- gain valuable information about the employment options of students who complete the BA (Hons) Health and Social Care course at NTU.
A PhD student from NTU will deliver a Research Skills workshop prior to the event at the participants' school or college. Dates will be scheduled for individual schools and colleges following an initial meeting with teaching staff.
The preparatory session is likely to cover:
- why research is important
- the differences between qualitative and quantitative research
- creating and using Google surveys
- the research brief and creating a poster
Be part of a research exhibition
During the preparatory session, participants will be asked to conduct some research on one of the themes outlined in the workshop. Over the following weeks participants will be asked to create a poster of their findings to exhibit at the conference in April.
