Last year I was asked by Elizabeth FitzPatrick, to assist with recording a seminar series for the School of Geography and Archaeology. The seminar series was organised to mark and celebrate the anniversary of 90 years of Archaeology at NUI Galway.
It was a lunchtime lecture series, organised by staff in the School, in collaboration with the Galway City Musuem. The venue for the talks was the Education Room at the Galway City Museum. The talks were free and open to all.
The lecture series was a huge success and drew large numbers each week.
The video podcasts from these seminars are available to view at My Own Galway.
The recorded seminar series is now being used by staff and students of the School of Geography and Archaeology as a learning resource.
Such was the popularity of the seminar series that the School decided to run it again this year and the final lecture will be held tomorrow, March 27th, The speaker will be Conor Newman and his lecture is titled, The Sword in the Stone: the Galway Connection.
The seminar series has been a really fantastic example of the University successfully engaging with public and community.
The 2015 series will be available online soon...
