Design and teach a module for undergraduates

King’s Experience is offering a group of postgraduate researchers the opportunity to design and teach their own module at undergraduate level.

The module will be available as one of the King’s Experience Interdisciplinary Awards. Details about the existing modules for the award can be found here. In particular, take a look at the Thinking Creativity module, which is designed and run by a group of postgraduate researchers from the Dept of Culture, Media and Creative Industries.

The costs you incur in designing and teaching the award will be met by King’s Experience.

This is an outstanding opportunity to enhance your academic practice and your CV, as you will design and manage every aspect of the module, although academic as well as financial support will be available from the King’s Experience team.

If you are interested in designing and teaching your own module, drop an email to King’s Experience with some first thoughts about your proposed module (maximum 500 words). Kindly write ‘King’s Experience Interdisciplinary Award’ in the email subject field. Applications can be from groups of two or more postgraduate researchers, and your proposed module must have a significant interdisciplinary aspect.

The closing date for applications is Monday 9th March.

Arts & Humanities Festival 2014: Underground

A4FestivalPosterJune2014v2The King’s Arts & Humanities Festival is back for a sixth year, offering dozens of free talks, workshops and performances exploring music, literature, philosophy, politics, history and religion and much more.

From 15 – 24 October, this year’s programme digs deep into the theme of the underground: a concept which has fascinated the human mind for centuries. From the ruins of Roman London to the bunkers of the Blitz; from underground dance music to radical opera.

Antony Beevor and Andrew Graham-Dixon will join pioneering biographer Dr Lara Feigel to uncover the history of sheltering during the Blitz in London and consider its representation in art. Author, IT Crowd actor and celebrated director Richard Ayoade will speak about his experience directing critically acclaimed film The Double. Comedian and activist Rob Newman presents his New Theory of Evolution fresh from the Edinburgh Festival. Poet and theologian Dr Rowan Williams will discuss excerpts from the four gospels with King’s Poetry Fellow Dr Ruth Padel with musical accompaniment from the Endellion String Quartet.

Most events are free but booking is required and opens on 17 September. Explore the full Festival programme at www.kcl.ac.uk/ahfest and join our mailing list now to receive early bird booking.
