Fundamentals of teaching course dates announced
8 October 2012
Autumn and spring term dates have been announced for a five-part course that examines various aspects of university teaching and which is suitable for early career and experienced academic staff alike.
‘Fundamentals of Teaching’ is mapped onto the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education. Participants can work towards gaining individual recognition for their teaching and acquire a qualification in the process.
The term ‘fundamentals’ does not imply that the course is only for early career teachers. Advanced research-based perspectives on teaching, learning and assessment are critiqued. The course also offers the opportunity for participants to discuss their work with colleagues from a wide range of disciplines; previous participants have described the sessions as “inspiring”.
The topics covered are:
1. Introduction and understanding student learning
2. Small Group Teaching
3. Large Group Teaching
4. Assessment and Feedback
5. Conclusion: Your Teaching and Research Career
Literature and further resources will be made available on a Moodle site to underpin the development of a portfolio if participants choose to become Fellows, Associate Fellows or Senior Fellows of the Higher Education Academy through the UCL professional development route. If their application is successful, they can use the appropriate post-nominal letters (AFHEA, SFHEA, etc).
Fundamentals of Teaching runs across five sessions, the dates of which are:
Autumn Term 2012: 9th October, 23rd October, 13th November, 27th November, 18th December
Spring Term 2013: 15th January, 29th January, 12th February, 26th February, 12th March
Please book your place in advance using the Single Traning Booking System (STBS) (simply book onto the first session and you will automatically be booked onto the other four), or email Andrew Bishop (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any queries.
