Course Description

This course taught by staff across the School of Arts offers sessions on running seminars; lecturing; planning and delivering activities in and outside the classroom; marking and feedback; TEF and teaching quality assessment; module design and its rationales; digital learning environments, social media and blended learning; equality, disability, reasonable adjustments, and pastoral support; with a final session with PGR alumni reflecting on teaching interviews, and teaching experience at Birkbeck and at other institutions. Deeply embedded in the concrete teaching environment of the School of Arts, this course showcases staff at the cutting edge of different aspects of teaching and learning, sharing experience and practical advice with our postgraduates to help them prepare to teach and develop their teaching portfolio. This course substantiates the College’s claims to high quality research-led teaching, meets the requirements for professional skills development at the heart of AHRC guidelines for professional skills development and current DTP provision.
