13 October 2021 - 10 November 2021
Join us for a series of four lunchtime workshops aiming to provide a practical guide for higher education teaching assistants, teaching fellows and demonstrators who are new to teaching geography, earth and environmental sciences.
Dr Lynda Yorke (Bangor University) and Professor Simon Tate (Newcastle University) will explore key issues, from pedagogies and technology, to inclusion and fieldwork.
The sessions will take place on the 13, 20, 27 October and 10 November, from 1.00pm - 2.00pm. We encourage you to attend all four workshops but if that’s not possible, please select the one(s) you wish to come to.
13 October, 1.00pm - 2.00pm
Our first session explores ways in which we can engage and work with a diversity of learners within small groups: from strategies for communicating effectively to understanding different learning styles in both online and in-person teaching.
20 October, 1.00pm - 2.00pm
The second session focusses on methods of inviting and giving feedback, setting assignments, and coping with challenges.
27 October, 1.00pm - 2.00pm
In this session, we take a look at the place of lab work and fieldwork in GEES subjects, how to tackle common challenges and know what to plan for, whether teaching online or in-person. We’ll also discuss how to work effectively with technical staff and field leaders.
10th November, 1.00pm - 2.00pm
The final session offers an opportunity to ask some of the questions the event has raised for participants and discuss our next steps to becoming better educators.
