Students Learning With Communities Host Annual Awards on Twitter

8 May, 2020

On Wednesday 6 May, Students Learning With Communities programme hosted their annual awards event online for the first time.

The programme team was delighted to be joined on Twitter by so many staff, students and community partners to celebrate the community-engaged research and learning projects carried out this year in the curriculum. The President tweeted his congratulations, highlighting the benefit of these projects to students and community partners, and the formal part of the event where the awards were announced was followed by lots of tweeting, retweeting and liking.

If you missed it you can catch up on twitter by searching for the @slwcTUDublin feed, and scrolling to 6 May. You can watch short video interviews with students, lecturers and community partners made earlier this year, listen to snippets of student feedback recorded at last year’s annual awards in Grangegorman, and generally be inspired!

If you’re interested in building community-engaged research and learning into your work, please contact slwc@tudublin.ie. You can also still apply (until May 11th) for a place on our new professional development opportunities in 2020/21, see here

Thanks so much to all our colleagues, particularly the team in Public Affairs, for your support for this new and very lively celebration format.
