Make a Zine, Make A Difference COMPETITION!
Make an Alternative Guide to Personal Tutoring and win a £50 voucher for each member of your team and have the opportunity to share your creation across the University.
The RARA project is a national research project, which is looking at why attainment gaps exist in higher education for students from BME (black and minority ethnic) groups and lower-socio economic backgrounds – compared with their peers. We want to explore whether enhancing personal tutoring could help to close these gaps see here.
The University want you to make an alternative guide to personal tutoring – a guide for students, by students – and have the opportunity for this to be shared across the whole university. The guide could look at questions like:
What is the role of a personal tutor?
What can your personal tutor help with?
What do you do if your personal tutor isn’t available?
Attainment gaps should not exist, and we want to find a way to close them, but we need help from you - the students. By participating in this competition you can really make a difference!
To enter, all you have to do is make an alternative guide in the form of a zine* or poster and complete the simple application form on the RARA website.
*a Zine is a small magazine that is typically made from folding an A4 piece of paper to produce a small 6-8 page booklet
All zines/posters entered into the competition will be shortlisted by a panel of judges, and the winner(s) will be chosen in December. Enter as an individual or as a team – do your own thing, or join with friends to put together a joint effort. (Max 4 people – each member receives £50 if the panel selects your zine.)
If you want help designing your guide or developing the content, then come along to a workshop:
Wednesday 10 October – 5-6.30pm
Tuesday 16 October – 4.15-5.45pm
Monday 22 October – 4.15-5.45pm
