Explore the role of the teacher in Higher Education, and review methods and strategies to actively engage students in their learning
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I am new to teaching in HE. Where do I start?
I feel the need for some fundamental skills and ideas to use in my HE Teaching.
I would like some support as to how I can develop my own teaching practice.
I would like to try out some new and different teaching activities that I haven’t used before.
Through this you will...
- gain ideas and skills for a ‘menu’ of practical L&T activities, techniques and strategies adaptable to your own practice & will develop your ability to provide effective learning experiences for your students. You will explore how you can draw on your own past experience as a learner and/or teacher to provide effective learning opportunities for students, and start to relate this to the scholarship of L&T in HE
- have the opportunity to work with others as you engage practically in carrying out some teaching activities, and receive feedback and encouragement for your own teaching practice.
