- The leadership landscape
19 June 2013 This seminar will present the main findings of the research LCLL conducted for the National College of School Leadership.
- Objects, Memory, and Narrative
04 July 2013 Narrative scholars have been turning to visual materials as sources and tools for understanding social life. This workshop explores the use of objects in memory work. Its methodology is similar to one employed by scholars interested in a grounded approach to cultural memory or "memory work" that "carefully builds up explanations from clues and traces extracted from readings of objects of study" (Kuhn, 2007:283)
- Brain Detectives: A fun new science club for kids and young people
27 May 2013 27-29 May 2013.
Different research projects involve different activities. Most involve fun computer games designed to work out how children perceive and interpret things. Others involve pen-and-paper tasks. And some use high-tech (non-invasive) equipment that can track children's eyes as they move acros the computer screen so we know what they are looking at.
All of the activities are mean to be enjoyable and straightforward. They also include opportunities for young people to learn about different science questions and to see what brain science can be fun!
