For the last one or two workshops, our volunteers and their school students will work on a presentation. This presentation will cover a specific workshop topic which students found particularly engaging, whilst being able to express what made the workshop so interesting and the kinds of exercises and materials that were employed.
This presentation will then be given by the school students on two occasions. First – in front of a class or year group of their KS4 peers. Second – at the ‘Your Health, Your Evidence’ Conference in May 2018.
YHYE 2018 Conference
To mark the end of our school volunteering programme, EBM+ will be holding a conference attended by each participant school (additional students are very welcome), our volunteers and various UCL academics.
Last year, this conference involved two keynote speakers, Professors David Healy and Mike Kelly. Six school presentations on a topic of their choice and planned during the last workshop. Then we finished with a panel of four volunteers you discussed their volunteering experience at university and about the YHYE school programme in particular.
The preliminary date for the conference is Wednesday, 2nd of May, 2018. More information on this will be provided nearer the time included speakers and an agenda. You can also have a look at last year’s conference here.
