Developing teaching skills for teaching assistants and new lecturers in History

9-45-3.45, Friday 20th April 2012, University of Manchester, University Place, 2.220

This workshop is aimed at History postgraduates in the later stages of study and early career lecturers. Driven in part by the substantial increase in fees, both universities and students increasingly demand high quality teaching from staff. The workshop will provide subject specific guidance designed to help you to improve teaching practice by providing advice and strategies for coping in the classroom. It will also discuss ways of maximising your potential in the current challenging UK job market. The day will be divided into four sections with discussions on lecturing, small group teaching, marking and career development. The workshop will be led by experienced lecturers from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. Numbers will be limited to 25, so please reserve your place at this free event now! To do so follow this link:
