Share with Schools Feedback!4 November 2016
The Share with Schools team received some really positive feedback from James Ryan, a Lecturer in Modern European (Russian) History at Cardiff University. Here is what James had to say about SwS.
I have been involved with Share with Schools (SwS) since the academic year 2015-16. These are superb initiatives that allow academics to speak with secondary school students, often in areas that might not traditionally send many students to university. Students come to gain an understanding of what university is about, and they have the opportunity to feel welcome in a university environment. For academic historians, SwS allows us to develop impact and engagement case studies, with an audience outside the university, that we can use for purposes of return in the Research Excellence Framework (REF).
I have found my experience of working on SwS personally rewarding, but also very useful as part of an impact case study that I am preparing for in the next REF cycle.
Thank you to James for this great feedback!
