The University has introduced a one-day workshop for those who are new to teaching in higher education. The second scheduled date for this academic year is Tuesday 23 January 2018 (10:00 – 16:00).
The aim of the workshop is to provide space to explore students’ approaches to learning, how to support a diverse student body, managing sessions, providing feedback on assessment and reflecting and assessing the impact of teaching sessions.
By the end of this course, participants will have explored: setting aims and outcomes for a session of teaching, selecting and evaluating appropriate methods and techniques of teaching for their discipline and situation, treating students as individual learners, class and student interaction assessment strategies and feedback, and dealing with challenging teaching situations.
The sessions are intended for anyone who has not taught, or is relatively new to higher education and particularly useful for HPLs or PhD students, for whom it is intended to be the first step along the road to gaining HEA Associate Fellowship.
This is best undertaken as part of a planned induction/orientation to teaching in HE. It is specifically about approaches to learning and teaching and not the broader aspects of policy or working at the University. Bookings may be made via the staff development webpages.
