Overview of the Labs

Introduction to Lab 2

The key purpose of this section is to welcome everyone back and start a discussion on what has happened since the last Lab.

It is worth showing some slides from Lab 1 on the Crucible model, rationale and objectives and a general recap on the Lab. The themes for Lab 2, which are mainly collaboration and interdisciplinary, should be introduced. The programme may also reflect more on public engagement and popularising academic research (this will depend to some extent on which sessions you have chosen to run), and starting to look at creative approaches to this. The introduction should emphasise that in this lab their focus will be much more on one another and each other’s research.

For more information on running this session, please refer to the downloadable documents.
