Room 01/009, Elmwood Building, Elmwood Avenue
This workshop is only open to students from NBE (Archaeology, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Geography and Planning)
Surveys of employers highlight that applicants for graduate level jobs often struggle to clearly and creatively communicate what they have gained from their degree and how this experience may benefit the employer. This one day workshop has been designed to give you an opportunity to reflect on how the skills and experience you are gaining in your degree will translate into the professional workplace and to develop ways to effectively communicate this in a persuasive manner to wider audiences.
The workshop centres on a team-based speedy project that requires you to reflect on the learning experiences you have gained at Queen’s, to understand how these translate into the professional workplace, and to develop ways to represent them visually with an accompanying pitch. By the end of the workshop, you and your team will have developed a set of images and a short pitch (text) which will be presented to the other teams involved in the workshop. Prizes will be awarded to the most persuasive set of project outputs.
This workshop is designed for undergraduate students enrolled within programmes delivered by the School of Natural and Built Environment (Archaeology, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Geography and Planning).
It is recommended that you bring a laptop or tablet and a smart phone or digital camera with you to it. If you do not have access to these, please email the workshop organiser (Dr Niall Majury) a week in advance of the workshop to let him know.
