Visit from Qatar

On 1st May 15, a group of mostly third year students from Northwestern University in Qatar and their professors visited Edinburgh to to study the elections, parliamentary democracy, and the ramifications of last year’s referendum/political divides in Scotland. As part of their study visit EACG members and Jim Crowther from Edinburgh University met with them at South Bridge Resource Centre. Nancy Someville and Pat Brechin spoke about the work of the group as well as the ‘Talk Scotland project’ and Jim Crowther introduced his research on adults’ learning experiences during the Referendum Campaign.

    I was actually part of that group. Just want to clarify that we are not graduate students. Most of us are rising juniors (third year-students) and one of us is a rising senior.
