New to Teaching in HE Workshops

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 two days and provide an opportunity to discuss ways of encouraging student learning, assessment and potential challenges, all of which previous attendees have found invaluable.
 
These 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
  • treating students as individual learners
  • class and student interaction with assessment strategies
  • feedback
  • dealing with challenging teaching situations
  • introduction to The Worcester Scheme
Workshops are running on the following dates:
 
Day 1 of this workshop series is specifically aimed at those staff who are starting off in higher education teaching, perhaps in their first appointment as associate lecturers, technicians or post-graduate students.
