Programme: Undergraduate Research

Thanks to the enthusiasm of the people we encountered at the Interactive and Innovative Learning in the Liberal Arts event at BISLA, we have redesigned the programme so that it is more closely linked to the other pillars of the BLASTER project - Teacher Training and Quality Standards. We are also delighted to include presenters from institutions outside the BLASTER network who are going to enrich the symposium by sharing their work.
