The UCL Festival of Culture returns this year, offering a fantastic snapshot of the breadth and quality of research and teaching across the arts, humanities and social sciences at UCL.

This six-day-long festival, comprising talks, workshops and exhibitions, is set to challenge your thinking and offer new ways of understanding our world.

UCL Institute of Education (IOE) academics are leading a number of events, exploring cutting-edge research and discussing some of the most pressing issues in social science and society in general.

This varied list includes the exploration of Fundamental British Values and an examination of the effects of ability grouping on pupils' ability to flourish personally and socially.

The first day sees talks on the rise of personalised digital reading as well as the concept of 'normal' and what we understand by this. Other events examine the role of a doctoral degree in the 21st century and whether the language used by an 11-year-old can be analysed to predict their cognitive function, physical activity and economic status throughout their adult life.

All of the events featured below are free of charge and open to all, however all require advance registration.
