The BU Carnival University brings together students with an interest in events and media production to co-create a series of informative workshops to be presented at the Carnival Expo in May 2018. Under the guidance of Senior Lecturer in Events Management, Dr Nicole Ferdinand and the Carnival Expo organizers and exhibitors, students will undertake the preparation of 4 workshops that they think will interest their fellow university students. They will also document their journey to the Expo, which will culminate in a fully-funded weekend in London where students will have the opportunity to show-off what they have learned to each other and members of the public.
If this is an opportunity you think your students will benefit from, please contact Dr Nicole Ferdinand, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. I’d also be happy to come along to a lecture for your students to hear more about it.
The BU Carnival University is made possible by a BU Learning and Teaching Fellowship Grant from CEL. Dr Nicole Ferdinand is one of BU’s four Learning and Teaching Fellows for 2017/18.
