New to Teaching Workshops

The University is running workshops later this month aimed specifically at those staff who are starting off in higher education teaching as an associate lecturer, technician or post-graduate student. These workshops are run over a day and provide an opportunity to discuss ways of encouraging student learning, assessment, and potential challenges; all of which previous attendees have found invaluable. The sessions are also open to registered lecturers employed by partner organisations.

There are no fees for these workshops.

In brief, the workshops cover:

– selecting and evaluating appropriate approaches to teaching and supporting learning for their discipline and situations

selecting and evaluating appropriate approaches to teaching and supporting learning for their discipline and situations

– treating students as individual learners

– class and student interaction with assessment strategies

Day 1 – Tuesday 21 September, 10am–3pm

Designed for staff who are starting off in higher education teaching, perhaps in their first appointment.

Day 2 – Thursday 23 September, 10am-3pm

Focuses predominantly on our remote and online teaching tools and how to provide effective content and support to students even when not able to meet and study in person. Also useful for those that attended one of our previous New to Teaching 1 workshops.
