Here at Petroc, there is a wide range of research and scholarly activity undertaken by staff. From completing research projects to publishing books, our staff contribute regularly to developments in their field.
Scholarly Activity meetings take place every half term on a Wednesday afternoon. All staff, students and members of the public are welcome to come and listen to colleagues talk about an area of special interest to them, in a relaxed atmosphere. All speakers contribute on a purely voluntarily basis and subjects are incredibly diverse.
In the academic year of 2013 - 14 we had:
Eirene Williams - Encounters with Amazing Trees: Plymouth University Fieldwork in Borneo
Mark Powell - What's Happening to the British Economy
Richard Crossman - What is Creativity?
Dr Vicky Barnard - Eating Disorders: the Latest Thinking
Alison Knight and Chris Moreby - The Educational Value of Gaming
Ideas for meetings are always welcome. We are currently assembling the programme for the 2015 conference so if you are interested in contributing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01271 852411.
