The Student Research Launch Pad team announces the 2020 winners of the annual GetPublished! poster competition and the newly launched student blogging competition.
The 2020 GetPublished! Conference couldn’t run in person this year, but that didn’t stop our students! Many Brookes students submitted and published fantastic posters on a wide range of impressive research project topics through the GetPublished! collection, part of the Student Research online collection on RADAR.
The winners of the annual poster competition are:
- Rhiannon Woodford, joint prize-winner for best poster: Vienna: An Urban Planning Pioneer (BA Architecture)
- Charlotte Cox, joint prize-winner for best poster: Oxford City: Closer to Net Zero Carbon Transport (BA Urban Design, Planning and Development)
- Joachim Toftegaard Hansen, highly commended poster: Wind farms of the future (BEng)
- Helen Burton, prize-winner for best poster: The diet of a small carnivore in a recovering semi-arid landscape (MSc Conservation Ecology)
- Melinda Mcpherson, highly commended poster: Service evaluation: Factors associated with missed or delayed diagnosis of major trauma in older people at a UK level 1 trauma centre (MSc Advanced Practice Clinical)
- Sally Gunnett, highly commended poster: How do I use my domestic space as an art studio? (MA Education Artist Teacher Practice)
The GetPublished! annual conference is part of the Student Research Launch Pad student experience project which supports students in developing their research and communication skills through sharing and publishing their research. This year the Student Research Launch Pad also ran research blogging workshops and a student blogging competition.
The winners of the 2020 student blogging competition are two great Events students:
- Sarah Lawrie, Best undergraduate blog (BA Events Management)
- Leo Tanner, Best postgraduate blog (MSc International Events Management)
Their highly professional and engaging blogs reflect on their learning and experiences during their degrees, conveying impressive skills and insight. They are a real testament to the Marketing and Events programmes!
