Event description

Description

These workshops introduce essential aspects of teaching for PhD students. Attendees will usually already have a limited experience of teaching but a smaller proportion of places are also available to those who have not yet had any experience of teaching.

Please note: Attendees must be available to attend both workshops.


Aims and objectives

The workshop consists of 2 x 3 hour workshops.


Session 1

Wednesday 9th May 2018

14.00- 17.00, GOR327, 43 Gordon Square

  • Ways of planning and organising a teaching session

  • An introduction to some pedagogic theories

  • Development of pedagogic principles in teaching and learning.


Session 2

Thursday 10th May 2018

14.00- 17.00, GOR327, 43 Gordon Square

  • Strategies to engage students in seminars

  • Barriers to learning and strategies for supporting students

  • Coping with possible interactions in the classroom

  • An opportunity for participants to share experiences and challenges.


Format of the meeting

The two sessions are largely interactive, drawing on participants’ experiences of teaching and learning.


Who is this event for?

  • The workshop provides an essential introduction to teaching for attendees who are just beginning teaching or who are considering future teaching activities e.g. PhD students who are beginning teaching as Graduate Teaching Assistants or as Associate Tutors.

  • Although attendance is open to students who have not yet undertaken any teaching, priority will be given to attendees with teaching commitments of 6 – 29 hours in the current academic year.

Please note: PhD students with teaching commitments of 30 hours of more per year are able to apply to the Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education but may find these Fundamentals of Teaching workshops a useful introduction.

Session lead

The session is led by Dr Sue Dunn.
