The programme for RGS-IBG Postgraduates Who Teach workshops commonly include:

  • an exploration of signature pedagogies in GEES
  • strategies for engaging, working with and offering feedback to a range of learners
  • tips for handling common teaching challenges
  • ideas for supporting lab work and fieldwork, and
  • discussion and reflection on the role and contribution of graduate teaching assistants in all these areas.
