The University of Sheffield recently engaged a new form of teaching for level 1 students. Known broadly as Achieve More, all first year students (nearly 2000) in the Faculty of Social Science were given a programme of talks on key issues and undertake some investigative challenges that would be completed in within the week. There are 8 groups of students (with 7 in each group), who are working on projects with me concerning the food landscape of Sheffield. I also gave one of the talks. The video of it is available here.
