The pedagogical legacy of Then & Now
Keywords:student research, resilience, creativity, pedagogy, employability, engagement
This reflective article explores the aftermath of the Then & Now project and demonstrates how the Faculty of Arts at the University of Warwick has sought to open up the opportunity to a greater number of students whilst simultaneously retaining the key learning elements of the programme. This piece demonstrates the compromises and challenges inherent in ‘scaling up’ a student intervention of this kind, alongside detailing the opportunities for improvement presented by repeating the engagement opportunity with a new group of students. The article also considers some of the difficulties presented by running the programme during the 2020/21 Covid-19 pandemic and reflects on learning opportunities and future plans.
