Located in Bloomsbury, London, Goodenough is home to students from all over the world studying at universities across London. Additional information on Goodenough College can be found at here.

Goodenough College has hosted 6 previous TEDx events, and this year’s event will take place on Saturday, 20 May 2017 and is focused on the theme of [R]evolution.

From the gradual and continuous development that necessitates evolution, to the abrupt and sudden change that constitutes revolution, TEDxGoodenoughCollege will explore how and why the world and its inhabitants are constantly changing, and where this may lead us.

For more information about the event, including highlights from last year’s event, please see the website.

SuperVisions

INNOVATIVE, STUDENT-LED WORKSHOPS ON PHD SUPERVISION

PhD students across the University of London are invited to participate in a new student-led initiative about academic supervision.

Workshops will be held on 14 June and 21 June, from 10am, at Goodenough College (you are welcome to choose the workshop that suits you best).

The initiative aims to open up interdisciplinary spaces for students to reflect on personal experiences of supervision, explore the perspectives of academics, think about differences across disciplines and develop resources for other students on this theme. Attendees will take part in discussions, which are not standard ‘skills workshops’ but more an opportunity to talk about aspects of university life often left unspoken.

To register your place please email Katherine Robinson (PhD Student, Sociology) at k.a.robinson@lse.ac.uk with your name, discipline, year of study & preferred workshop date.
