Discovery Days 2013

Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar


The annual Discovery Days began in 2004, and since that time they have brought
the work of 177 new Professors at the University of Dundee to the attention of a wide
non-specialist audience, including members of the public, schools, students,
academics and support staff from across the University.
These presentations have, over the years, given us the rare privilege of observing the
process and the impact of discoveries across a breathtaking array of topics and issues from
the latest educational theory, through innovations in construction, critical thinking and law to
nursing, drug discovery and healthcare.
At Discovery Day 2013, we will be welcoming a further eight new Professors, talking
on subjects as rich and varied as climate change, Scottish trade unions,
mathematics and the care of new born babies.
The event also hosts three presentations from our leading learning and teaching
practitioners, who will also give us insight into new and innovative teaching
methodologies and technology.
