Blogging Beyond the Classroom: Students as Active Partners in Research and Public Engagement

Showcasing the work of LJMU students on two undergraduate English modules – ‘Writing Lives’ and ‘Prison Voices’ – in which students create a public website to disseminate their research via blogs and social media, the Prezi above accompanied a paper jointly delivered by Helen Rogers and student presenters John England, Tereza Kirwan and Kim Athawes at the LJMU Teaching and Learning Conference (16 June 2014).

John, Tereza and Kim reported on what they and fellow students learned about writing for a public audience, conducting online research, using social media, and reflected on what they have gained – intellectually and personally – from the experience of research collaboration and public engagement.
