New Approaches to Teaching

An¬†interactive forum offering opportunities to hear about initiatives which have had an impact on student learning; to share experiences with colleagues from across the university; to explore tensions and opportunities of different approaches and how these could apply to your own teaching. The events are intended for academic and teaching staff with at least three years’ Higher Education teaching experience.

The theme for 2017/18 is: Creative approaches to learning, teaching and assessment.

While the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and student surveys such as the National; Student Survey (NSS), the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) and the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) have increasingly foregrounded teaching as a metric. The emphasis in these sessions is on approaching teaching as an exciting, challenging, surprising activity in which we can take pride.

The first session, ‘Using creative and imaginative forms of assessment’ will be presented by Professor Charlotte Sleigh, School of History on Tuesday 10 October, 12.55-14.00
