Take control of your education
EventMovement is an online platform that allows people to design and commission educational events. The Robinson Library at Newcastle University is holding a competition for students to use EventMovement to design events they would like to see, with a £250 for the best idea.
After proposing an idea on the platform, students can encourage others to support their ideas. Following this the proposal goes into the Get Involved and Plan It phases, where supporters collaboratively discuss and design the event in more detail.
Each of the ideas for educational events in the competition will be judged by the Library, Open Lab researchers and Chris Duddy, Education Officer at the Students’ Union. The student behind the winning idea will win £250, with runners up prizes of £150 and £100.
The educational events could be anything from small study sessions to workshops and lectures. Each idea will be refined through EventMovement’s collaborative process, giving students control of the events.
The winners of the competition will be announced in January. Full details about the competition can be found on the EventMovement website.
