Flair Week in Humanities and Social Sciences

Flair Week saw all the subjects of the faculty hosting a range of different activities and opportunities for students to enjoy, engage with and show off their learning. There were a lot of examples throughout the week of students taking ownership of their learning, researching and presenting their work to classes. Every subject within the faculty gave students the chance of teaching classes, hosting quizzes or also having student led projects and workshops. As well as this, students discussed thought provoking topics and held debates, all showcasing their skills and enthusiasm.

Within business, economics and law, there were lots of opportunities for students to meet professionals and experts in their field. Either virtually and in person, students were then able to question them through interviews. Additionally, in history students put snacks to a creative use and built their own version of the Berlin Wall using biscuits. These creations helped showcase their understanding of the divide and complete with jelly baby escapees, helped explain the risk and reasons for escape!

It was great to see so many students actively and eagerly engaged with the different tasks. Students have shared with staff how much they enjoyed these activities and want to keep having the opportunity to showcase their learning.
