EVENT: 26th July – Discovering strategies and approaching new phenomena


    Discovering strategies and approaching new phenomena: the Lab 0_6 as a boost
    for new questions.

    Dr. Gabriel Lemkow. Lecturer in Early Childhood Education
 (UManresa-FUB/Universitat de Vic-Universitat Central de Catalunya).
    Wednesday 26 July
    4pm – 5:30pm
    Biosocial Research Lab
    Room 2.52

    Learning about new phenomena and dealing with emerging enquiries are situations that children deal with on a daily basis. However, the phenomena or enquiries that adults might find interesting or useful are not always so fascinating for children.

    In this seminar we will present and discuss examples from the Lab 0_6: Discovery, Research and Documentation Centre aimed at Science Education for Early Ages (UManresa-FUB). We will discuss ways that children might find a different approach in dealing with new possible knowledge, as well as some of the strategies that children might use to respond to these new situations.

    Please contact David Rousell d.rousell@mmu.ac.ukwith any questions about the seminars, and to register your interest in attending.

    Biosocial Research Lab

    The recently formed Biosocial Research Lab in the Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI) is organising a series of monthly seminars that will run through the end of the year. The Lab aims to support innovative, creative, ethical, and experimental research collaborations and dialogues across the arts, humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences, with a shared focus on the biosocial dimensions of learning and behaviour. In pursuing these aims, the seminar series is designed to offer participants an opportunity to engage with current concepts, issues, technologies, practices and findings in the emerging field of biosocial research. We also see this as an opportunity to forge collaborative relationships with scholars and practitioners working in diverse fields across the arts, humanities, and sciences.
