An opportunity to help plan, deliver and evaluate the NUAGE module.
Newcastle University Ageing Generations Education (NUAGE) is a module available to undergraduate students doing any degree program at Newcastle University. NUAGE comprises a series of lectures, interactive seminars, and computer-based learning on the topic of ageing. NUAGE runs annually in partnership with students and a team of VOICE members who help to plan, deliver and evaluate the teaching sessions.
NUAGE is an "extracurricular" module which means that students study this module in addition to their own degree modules.
The aims of NUAGE are:
Anyone with an interest in ageing is welcome to take part.
You will become part of the EXBEX team (Experts By Experience) and be involved throughout the delivery of the NUAGE module. You will be asked to undertake a number of varied roles depending on your availability and preferences.
This can include:
Guidance and training will be provided where necessary, and you will have the chance to opt out of activities that you do not feel confident about.
The NUAGE teaching takes place a the central Newcastle University campus, near Haymarket metro station during the Spring Term (Jan-March). The lectures are scheduled for early evenings to be able to fit in with students' other classes. NUAGE meetings usually take place during the day and are most often held at the Biomedical Research Building, Campus for Ageing and Vitality.
