New training sessions launched for SLMS teachers
17 January 2012
A programme of training sessions focusing on teaching in SLMS (the School of Life and Medical Sciences) has been launched for Spring 2012.

The content of the sessions, which will run throughout January, February and March, has been devised by Dr Rosalind Duhs and Dr Mark Weyers, both senior school-facing teaching fellows for SLMS. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about a range of topics, including personal tutoring, e-learning, course design, feedback assessment.
“There are lots of excellent teachers in SLMS but they may never have had the chance to look at the wide range of research into teaching, learning and assessment in higher education,” says Duhs.
“Medical education and Life Sciences educational research are particularly strong and interesting. We would like to help staff to draw on that body of research and use their creativity to devise new ways of helping students to learn.”
A session entitled ‘Reflective Practice and the UK Professional Standards Framework (Introduction)’, which explores accreditation options, will also be on offer for those interested in gaining formal recognition for their work.
The short courses have been designed in line with the SLMS Education Review 2011’s stated aim to “ensure that all staff are able to actively contribute to [their] educational goals and aspirations” and “value and promote educational scholarship and research”.
The programme is not exhaustive; if a member of SLMS staff is interested in gaining training in another teaching-related area, Duhs and Weyers are open to suggestions.
