For GYA members and alumni only: connect to the group, collaborate and discuss with other members on the GYA-internal Agora platform here.


Our plans for 2020 include:

  • Compiling and analysing the results of our 2019 AGM survey about GYA members use of experiments (and thoughts on limitations etc.) so that they are in a more easily shared and accessible form.
  • Do a short literature review on the topic and circulate key articles to members.
  • Do a short scoping review of current higher education courses on the theme or related to the topic of “the experiment”.



In 2020/2021, the Critical Experiments Incubator group, with the help of the Research Assistant Candida Sanchez Burmester (Maastricht University, Netherlands), compiled the results of our 2019 GYA Annual General Meeting survey on the different types, challenges and possibilities of experiments across our fields.

One outcome of this was to ask GYA members to expand on their responses in short videos, which are being compiled (watch this space!). We presented our ideas during the 2021 AGM, and further input was obtained. Considering the challenges of progressing this group in a virtual environment, this group will remain dormant until the 2022 AGM. We look forward to picking up the topic with interested GYA members. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the co-leads with your ideas or questions.
