And finally…Some other resources you might find useful!

Plickers – the tool that Steve mentioned right at the end of the session!

Our Digital Library of online resources co-created by teachers and researchers – the look of the library is current being upgraded but all the content is still available, and this link will always direct you to the most up-to-date version:

12 online quiz tools – alternatives to Vevox – as used by teachers! Gemma particularly recommends Kahoot!

More about the 5 minute lesson plan – the teachers’ handy tool our Workshop Planning Template is based on.

The NCCPE School-University Partnership Initiative (SUPI) project which led to all of this being possible! In particular check out the SUPI Lessons booklet and the Perspectives on Partnership (PoP) Tool.

Today’s session was adapted from our half-day training session, Engaging with Schools. Read the open access Research For All paper on the how we put it together and what we learnt about partnership working along the way!

And of course, don’t forget to read & explore the rest of our world-recognised Building School-University Partnerships Guide Book! Explore the online version (which is being updated along with the Digital Library) or the pdf (most up to date version so far) above.
