This is a yearly one-day event, with two key note speakers and a number of internal and external speakers. This year’s research symposium was based around the topic ‘Children’s Cultures, Wellbeing and Digital Society’.
The symposium was well-attended, with 100 people signing up; attendees included fellow academics; school teachers; early years practitioners; FE colleagues; representatives from the local council etc.
There were two keynotes:
Dr Sarah Parsons (Universiy of Southampton): “Digital worlds and autism: collusion or communication?”
Prof Louise Arseneault (Kings College, London): ‘Mental Health and Social Isolation & Bullying in Schools’
Parallel sessions were led by internal and external staff. The symposium was a success and is a great way to do some networking and promote research in SECS.
