Safety in Numbers: Working and Socialising Together
From Benjamin Davies
Students share their experiences of the value of working and socialising together for mutual support, peer learning, and identity safety. They express a desire that mechanisms be integrated into curricula to facilitate socialisation and community-building.
Explanatory note: Video narratives are compiled from extracts of weekly diaries maintained by first year students in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Manchester Met in autumn 2021. Without changing meaning, minor edits are applied to otherwise verbatim written content to improve fluency in the spoken word. Narrated by Anita Nessa, Neisha Woolrich-Fraser, Zoe Ka-Ncube, and Ajeet Samra (students and B.A.M.E. Ambassadors at Manchester Met) to preserve authors’ anonymity.
