Throughout the week, staff will have the opportunity to attend a range of events to help further understand what KE is and hear best practice case studies from academics in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences who undertake valuable KE training and activities.

Dr Kate Woodthorpe, Director of Knowledge Exchange for the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, who is leading on the KE Showcase Week, says:

There is a lot of excellent Knowledge Exchange work happening in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science, and this KE Showcase Week is an opportunity to share that work and learning, and to demonstrate the potential of KE as part of an academic career to colleagues.

We have put together a range of events throughout the showcase week to show what KE means and how you can develop that strand of an academic career. The week is focused around HSS work and aimed at HSS colleagues, but the events are open to all staff across the University who want to learn more about KE and its potential.

Please make sure to register for events, and you will then be sent a zoom link to join the session. All online sessions will be recorded and put on the HSS KE webpage, but to get the most out of them we recommend that you attend the live event.
