Pre-induction task

Pre-induction taskEach cohort will begin the programme with a whole day induction event. The purpose of this is to bring the group together and to begin establishing peer and group networks through engaging in a range of experiential learning tasks. This day sets the tone for the rest of the programme, in that it is recognised that everyone has something relevant to offer to well-formed teaching and learning events.

“A University is a place … whither students come from every quarter for every kind of knowledge; … a place for the communication and circulation of thought, by means of personal intercourse. … It is the place to which a thousand schools make contributions; in which the intellect may safely range and speculate. It is a place where inquiry is pushed forward, … discoveries verified and perfected, and … error exposed, by the collision of mind with mind, and knowledge with knowledge. … Mutual education, in a large sense of the word, is one of the great and incessant occupations of human society. … One generation forms another. … We must consult the living man and listen to his living voice, … by familiar intercourse … to adjust together the claims and relations of their respective subjects of investigation. Thus is created a pure and clear atmosphere of thought, which the student also breathes.” - Newman (1852)
