Want to know more about what it’s like to present at the Conference as a student?
Ruaa Hariri, a Leeds PhD researcher and English Language teacher, has written all about her experience at last year’s conference in a blog post.
Having realised the real-world impact of research at the 2019 conference, Ruaa decided to apply in 2020. She said:
“I participated in the conference by preparing both a poster and a presentation, demonstrating the initial findings of my research, which was titled ‘Exploring Sustainable Assessment Feedback in Second Language Education: Insights from Preparatory Year Teachers’. However, I did not expect my presentation to be selected for ‘Most Original Concept’. I was utterly thrilled when they announced my name during the awarding assembly!
“This is just one of the examples of how the University of Leeds offers opportunities and support for students to develop not only their presentation, communication, and research skills, but also, their critical thinking skills.”
