Thank you very much for your interest in Education Day 2022.
Unfortunately, due to UCU strike action, Education Day will no longer take place on 30 November 2022.
We are continuing to explore a suitable date in the new year that will allow us to deliver this event in a format close to that originally planned, so we ask you to kindly bear with us while we finalise these arrangements.
We will be in touch once more information becomes available.
In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your continuing support for Education Day and we hope to bring you a wonderful event in 2023.
About Education Day
Education Day is an annual event which takes place at St George’s, University of London. It is open to everyone involved in the educational experience of St George’s students, including students themselves.
Education Day this year will have a focus on community, connection and learning together.
The day will open with a look at the education dimensions of the new 2030 University Strategy. We will ask what this strategy means for you and what an excellent education experience at St George’s really looks like and will continue to explore these questions through the sharing of ideas, practice and challenges.
Afternoon plenary session
This session will be a chance to consider together what the themes 'Care and Connection' mean in education and specifically within St George's.
Our Keynote Speaker will be Dr Karen Gravett, from the Surrey Institute of Education at the University of Surrey. Reflecting on the disruptions to education brought about by Covid and on increased concerns about students' wellbeing and engagement, she will argue for the value of an approach to teaching that notices the day-to-day things, practices and spaces of students' learning, and will think about the key role that relational pedagogies play in fostering engagement and connection.
Karen will be followed by Katie Pavoni and Caroline Neveu from the Paramedic Science BSc programme. In their talk, entitled 'Striving to build a village in a city', they will address ways in which they have worked to foster a caring and compassionate ethos that resonates throughout the learning community and curriculum.
With these talks for stimulus, participants will be invited to contribute to reflection and discussion, drawing from their own thinking and experiences around the themes.
