Student presentations 29/11

Yesterday the students presented their ideas in their finality to the practitioners and others from the sector that attended. This was an opportunity for the students to trail their presentations before they meet a larger audience at the IRISS Forum and also to receive feedback on these ideas and how they have fleshed them out with relevance to the South side of Glasgow and the communities there.

We won’t go into too much detail about the presentations here as it will be a spoiler for the presentation next Tuesday – suffice to say there will be a live blog following the presentations and the presentation will be made available online – address to follow after Tuesday.

Thanks to the students who have had a difficult task, not only in understanding their theme, getting to grips with the local context but also for trying to integrate the information from four different sectors who think about care and support quite differently from one another. No mean feat!

The ideas that were created have been grounded in the research that they’ve undertaken with older people, carers and practitioners. They seek to complement the other work going on locally, linking in to what already exists to make their implementation more viable.
